The Jim Laker Cricket Quilt
09/07/2006 - I was commissioned to make this quilt for the Lord’s Taverners charity using the ties of Jim Laker, a famous cricket player. We came up with a design that would feature the scoreboard from Jim Laker’s most important 19 for 90 game played in 1956. I embroidered the scores on the ties, as well as Jim Laker’s signature (which I copied from his real signature). The quilt was auctioned for The Lord’s Taverners on September 18, 2006..
