I’ve been a busy bee

My son’s friend gave me a bag of t-shirts to make a memory quilt. This is one of many quilts I have completed for his family. He usually tells me to do whatever I want as long as I keep the colors in the black/gray family as they are usually biker shirts. This time his only request was to make it big. The problem is he only gave me five shirts. After much thought and many trips to browse Pinterest I decided I would make a very large border and then fill in around the shirts. Here is the end result. I hope he likes it.

Quilt number two is for the same family. They are a very active family that runs marathons, enjoy sports, and overall live a healthy lifestyle. Again, the request was to make it large. I took a little creative license with this one by adding the family name at the bottom to make it a queen size. I quilted it on my long arm with small meandering around the shirts, a leaf pattern on the inside sashings, and feathers around the outside borders.

I am a retired grandmother living in sunny and hot Florida. I spend most of my days doing what I love: sewing and quilting. I have a spoiled rotten Boston Terrier named Sami who keeps me busy mostly by cleaning up after her and refilling holes in the yard that she insists on digging and burying her toys. Of course then she digs them up and brings them into the house resulting in...you guessed it...more cleaning. I will be posting pictures of Sami, quilts, flowers, and other things as they come along. Glad to have you join me.
