TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALL GAME

Take Me Out To The Ball Game was made for Ryan who will grow up to love the Chicago Cubs.  “Take me out to the ball game.  Take me out to the park.  Buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks.  I don’t care if I ever come back.  It’s one, two, three strikes, you’re out at the old ball park”.  I incorporated all the parts of this song into the quilt including an antique postcard of the park, a 3D hot dog, cracker jacks, a 3D antique child’s glove, an Ernie Banks baseball card, a ticket, the famous Wrigley Field entrance, the Cubs “C” and mascot.  There is the curse of the Billy Goat–a man used to take his billy goat to the games.  He was asked to get his billy goat out of there and never come back. The man put a curse on the team saying that they would never win a World Series.  And they haven’t!  I made a flap with the sign of the Billy Goat Tavern on it.  When the flap is lifted, you see the billy goat.
