Sew Into Sports: Quilts for the Fans in Your Life
By Barbara Brackman
Kansas City Star Books; $19.95
Quilt historian Barbara Brackman is not a sportswoman, but that doesn’t stop her from making sports-themed quilts for charities and for her nieces and nephews. She points out that the raffle quilts that brought in the most funds were autographed sports quilts, noting that combining the sports fans and quilt fans really multiplies your audience. One potential problem for quiltmakers is the sports fabrics, and here Barbara says to “think defense” and manage “your players.” She includes eight projects suitable for the sports fans in your life. And, if you are interested in a charitable project, she’s included tips for gathering signatures. I loved the “Slam Dunk Show Quilt” with its hightop basketball shoes and autographed soles.
