Scott's Duncan Wildkat T-shirt Quilt

This quilt is made from all of Scott's high school t-shirts.  I promised to make it long ago.  He has been out of high school for 20 years now.  When I gave it to him his face lighted up and I could see his joy.  It made all my work so worth while.

I love having his name in the center.  It makes it so personal.
It's never finished without a label.

Elephant receiving blanket for Val's grand daughter.

Another simple receiving blanket from the self-binding receiving blanket pattern.  Isn't this fabric cute.

Barn Quilt for Kristen

I am on a committee at church to make quilts or afghans for the new born babies in our congregation.  We gave an afghan to this mother 3 years ago, so I have been doing this at least that long.  She was so appreciative of the gift.  
 I like to quilt the babies name into the quilt and the year.
 I am learning to quilt with rulers on my Tiara sit down machine.
 It was hard to decide what to quilt so I just quilted around the pictures.
The back shows more of what was quilted.  
Click on the photo for a better view.  The fabric is really cute.

Toy Train Quilt for Katrina and son

 The inspiration for this quilt came from a book, Patchwork Plus written by my friend, Geralyn Jones Powers,  I didn't follow her pattern completely.  I rarely follow a pattern totally, but the inspiration came from her and I want to give her credit for that.  
 This train is printed on the fabric.  I didn't do applique like Geralyn does. 
 Click on the photo to get a better view of the quilting.  I did it myself on my Tiara sit down machine.
This is another quilt for a lady in the Relief Society group of my church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  My job in our church is to make quilts for the new born babies.  
I like to put the babies name and the year on each quilt.
