A Home Run

 Home Run

(Baseball themed Happy Blocks)

40 x 60

Ready for giving or gifting. 

 I'm still trying to finish up a bunch of donation tops I made last year in an effort to move out odds and ends and bits and pieces of this and that. 

 I have a box - my HAPPY PLACE- full of a variety of Happy Blocks and centers for Happy Blocks. Most are the result of a variety of swaps I participated in with different groups back when the grandkids were younger.  Sometimes we swapped Happy Blocks, sometimes we swapped novelty centers in different sizes with or without a theme and sometimes we sent around centers to a group of people and they bordered our centers and sent them back (when postage was cheaper) and I bordered theirs and sent them all back. 
 I found an almost complete set of baseball themed Happy Blocks in my Happy Place.  I only had to make about four more blocks and I had a top.  Good thing! Those bits and pieces weren't doing anyone any good stuck in a box. 
 I probably have enough centers and fabric for two more baseball themed quilts this size. But I'm thinking after I get all these small 40 x 60 quilts finished and donated I'll move on to twin sized quilts for donation. So a baseball themed twin sized quilt may be in my future. 

 I pieced the back.  
I quilted it on my DSM with swirls or are they spirals? 
The binding is a variety of blues from the leftover binding box.

Great finish, it will be appreciated! A baseball 'I spy' Happy Block quilt with a fun back, what's not to like?
That's a good feeling to clear out projects getting them finished, I agree.
