One In The Pocket
My son loves to play a game of pool. When he was house hunting, the only requirement that he had was that the house needed a place for a pool table...preferably not in the dining room. The quilt I made for him has the numbered balls and cue sticks as the focus print. Jenny Doan's Missouri Quilt tutorial called Alter Ego -- a versatile combination of the hour glass and the scrappy four patch, turned out to be a good match. I used 5 inch squares for the four patch block and 10 inch squares for the hour glass block. For the border, I stitched a 3 inch patchwork. The backing fabric is a fleece in a similar focus fabric. After dividing the top into quadrants, I straight line quilted in each area. It was a fun project and came together a lot faster than I imagined....just in time for a break in a lively game of pool.
