This quilt is similar to my quilt "Field of Dreams" that won two ribbons at the Machine Quilter's Expo in New Hampshire. The original quilt was featured in a "Quilter's Newsletter Magazine" special publication "Quilt It For Keepsakes" in December 2007. This is your chance to own your very own famous Red Sox t-shirt quilt! ("Field of Dreams" is pictured in the Gallery).
RED SOX QUILT FOR SALE: 60"x76" large lap quilt, or extraordinary wall quilt (I will add a hanging sleeve on request), $895. Each quilt I make is unique, with slight variations in the t-shirts used, and different fabrics. All quilts are made with top quality materials and 12 brand new MLB Red Sox t-shirts. There will only be 4 or 5 of these quilts made, so don't wait too long!
"Field of Dreams II" pictured above is SOLD. "Field of Dreams III" is SOLD. I can make one just for you in 6-8 weeks. It will have slightly different shirts, and different fabrics, including recently released official Red Sox fabric. There will only be one or two more made. Price: $950 for 66"x81". If you are interested in purchasing "Field of Dreams IV" please contact me at the email below. Thank you!
Wow! So you think the price is out of the ballpark? If you are wondering how I arrived at $895 for a 60" x 76" quilt, here is a breakdown. 12 new MLB t-shirts @ $25 each, total $300. Stabilizer material $14. 7.5 yards of top quality cotton fabric @ $12/yard, total $90. Quilting at 2.5 cents/sq. inch, $132. Thread $10. Batting $22. 20 hours of labor @ $20/hour, total $400. Hand finished binding $117. Not to mention shoppping for all those t-shirts, washing and drying them twice, washing all the fabric, electricity, hot water, wear and tear on my sewing machine, etc. The grand total is $1085. So you see, $895 is a steal! And owning a one of a kind award winning Red Sox quilt... priceless.

These quilts are made in memory of Red Sox pitchers Smoky Joe Wood and Joe Wood Jr. Smoky Joe Wood (1889-1985, 1912 World Series) is my husband's grandfather. Joe Wood Jr. (1916-2002) is my husband's father. Thus my interest in the Red Sox!
