A Tennis Quilt

Tennis Quilt, Batter Up Pattern, Fat Quarter friendly and easy to make!

You know what I love more than every sport combined (besides sewing…obviously I consider that a sport)?   Tennis.  

In my mind I’m really good at tennis…but in reality I’m pretty “meh” at tennis.  Even though my skills are seriously lacking it’s been one of my favorite sports since high school.

The best part about the Batter Up pattern I shared last week (thank you for all the kind comments about it!) is that it can double as a tennis quilt.

To make this pattern into a tennis quilt, all you do is swap the white fabric out for lime green (or is it yellow?!) and the red fabric out for white. 

The fabric I used for the tennis balls is called Add it Up in Glow by Cotton and Steel.   For the rest of the quilt I used some fabrics from my stash, prints from my Bounce fabric line (which is in a lot of shops now!), and a few of these Blossom basics. I’ve been using those non-stop and loving them.

This is the crib size quilt, and my 11 year old was a good sport for making a stop at the tennis court on the way home from church so I could snap this picture.

It looks sunny and warm but it was FREEZING!  I’m ready for warmer weather.  

The Batter Up pattern can be found here as a PDF, or here as a paper pattern.
