Basketball for C.J.

Basketball for C.J. by Shannon Turner and Maxine Moore

March Madness demands that we share a basketball quilt this week. The featured quilt  in the March 21, 2010 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt newsletter was made for six-year-old Gerald Turner, and it is called Basketball for C.J. It was a collaborative effort between Gerald’s Mom Shannon Turner and his grandmother Maxine Moore.

Gerald has grown up around quilts. His entire life has been a collage of patchwork, friends and creative energy. So when he suggested he wanted a basketball quilt, his Mom knew it was time to plant the seeds of stardom. Basketball fabric is the focus of the quilt. His grandmother completed the theme with an embroidered basketball hoop in the border of the quilt.

Basketball for C.J. is on Gerald’s bed where hoop dreams are born.
