Melissa and Angie made lots of quilts - including 2 to give to Nick Swisher of the Indians and Billy Butler of the KC Royals for their work with veterans.
Me, go to a baseball game and present quilts? Yes, that is a no-brainer!

|Yes, I was really there!|

|Mr. Billy Butler waiting to come out|
|Can't have a game without these guys|
The 2 quilts Melissa and Angie made to present to Nick Swisher and Billy Butler. I was honored to be there and honored they used our Stars and Bars pattern and our Grant Park fabric to make them.
Hope you had a great weekend too!
P.S. As everyone knows that reads this blog and knows me a little bit - I am a life long, die-hard, long suffering Detroit Tigers fan. The Cleveland Indians have been a rival forever. Everyone there in Cleveland was wonderful to me and to Quilts of Honor - and the passionate dislike I carried will forever be softened. Also, if you are a life long sports fan of a particular team (any team) there is always that ONE GUY from the other team that you love to hate. THAT ONE GUY who gets game winning hits against you. You know that guy?? Well that guy used to be Nick Swisher for me. Not anymore. Mr. Swisher proved himself to be a gentleman, he was gracious. lovely, and a bit adorable. Now I have to find a new THAT GUY.
