Now who ever said that crafting wouldn't pay off in the end?

Paul alerted me to this amazing quilt up for auction.
It's not often that baseball and quilting come together in such a fascinating way. This is a true treasure. The quilter, Clara Schmitt Rothmeier was truly a baseball enthusiast, as well as being a softball player herself. She collected all of these autographs and embroidered over them.

That is truly amazing. I hope a museum of folk art or sports or local history will win the auction, so that it can continue to be enjoyed by everyone.

On your previous post, it just stinks that you are being treated this way. People just don't get it, do they? I'm shocked that the DMV person would have the guts to say what she did. Ick.
