Matt L's T-shirt quilt

Matt is a baseball player, and several of his uniform shirts are in the middle two rows.  They are button shirts, so I had to sew the two fronts together, cut off the buttons, and hand-stitch the buttonholes closed.  It was his suggestion to use the dark grey for sashings, and I think it was a good choice.  The shirts all really stand out.  The backing is black with grey swirls all through it.  (Nov 2010)

Christmas Stockings

Just finished these two Christmas stockings for a friend.  She has two for her daughter's that needed new fur on the top, and then wanted these similar ones for future sons-in-law.  Quilting was done with Sulky gold sliver metallic thread.

Jamie D's T-Shirt Quilt

Jamie played volleyball, softball and basketball.  Lots of great memories for her here.  Two of the smaller pieces were a sports bra!!  Shades of green for the sashings, and black with white dots for the backing. This is a double bed size.

Casey C's T-Shirt Quilt

Casey played softball and basketball.  Also some special non-athletic shirts.
Black with white stars for the sashings makes the shirts look like they are floating in space.  The back is multi-colored abstract flowers.  This is a double bed quilt.
