to boast about the PHILLIES
you know.. the WORLD CHAMPION Philadelphia Phillies...

i'm not gonna lie & say i'm the biggest fan...
cause i'm not.. & i've been too busy quilting to watch most of the games this year.
but i come from a baseball family.

with my dad...


and even if i miss the games... i'm still a phillies girl at heart!


my nephew in training... sorry nick.. he isn't going to be a giants fan!

i miss this kid so much!! why do you guys have to live on the opposite coast?
{karin.. i can't find the recent pic of him in the utley shirt?.. can you re-send it to me?}


our new ballpark rocks... we even have a liberty bell that rings & flashes upon a home run & winning game...


and i can't have a post completely quiltless..
soo....


this was the 14th quilt i ever made... it was back in early 2005!


it is a pattern by Mark Lipinski that was published by McCall's Quilting back in April 2005
i made less blocks.. added some different borders... including the bases as cornerstones... and backed it in fleece....

dad with it @ a game... mom must have took the pic b/c i don't have any of her??

so congrats to the Phillies!! for being the NL East Division Champs for 3 years in a row!
kick butt in the playoffs... while i'm @ Market!!

#1!! 2008 World Champions

with lots of good stuff!!

Love the post... My dad was just here in MPS for the weekend. Friday was his 75th bday, spent at on of the last games in our metrodome, next year we go outdoor. I have a baseball quilt to make for Christmas for my oldest.. I gotta go leave a comment for Laurie S, we play Detroit on Tuesday!

Hmmm I don't see a recent pic on my computer of him in the Utley shirt. It may be on Brad's computer or it may be still in my camera but I don't have it on my computer to send you. There is room enough to love two teams. E won't forget about the Giants.

My boyfriend (a Philly native) is a die-hard Phillies fan and when he saw your post over my shoulder, he immediately wanted a quilt like that. I guess I know what I should make for Christmas... :)

My hubs grew up outside Philly and was a big Philly fan. We recently went to the new park and it really is a terrific park. However, we are die hard Red Sox fans. How couldn't we be, living in New England? You will definitely see me planted somewhere, at market, in front of a TV that has the games on!!

I love that quilt pattern! I saw it made up in a shop and I tried to convince my mom to make one for my daughter when she was born (she's almost 4). Still no quilt. but so pretty!!
