Snow balls for charity

I won these blocks as the block-of-the-month from my guild in  Feb 2010, and just now got around to putting them together.  Added 20 extra blocks to make a nice sized quilt.  (52x64).  Found some snowflake fabric to use for borders and backing.  Did a simple meander just to get it done.  It will go to charity - our guild sponsors a "comfort quilts" group for the needy.  (Dec 2010)

Ann's fleece

This is for my cousin's wife who is battling cancer.  Thought it would keep her warm and comfy.  I quilted the two layers together just for fun.  (Nov 10)

A FIRST PLACE WINNER . . . .This one is for ME!!  I squeezed some time in while working on customer quilts.  My guild's challenge this year was for a string quilt, and this pattern caught my eye.  It's in the Jan/Feb issue of Quiltmaker Mag.  The only fabric I had to buy was fthe black for the tow borders.  Used leftovers for the inner border, so bought 1/2 yard more to finish the outer border. All the rest, including backing and batting, are from my stash.  (Fall 2010)  Quilted a lot of feathers - a fan shape in the blocks, and curves in the borders.   This also earned a second place ribbon at the 2012 String Along Quilt Guild show.

Alex F. T-shirt quilt

Alex has a mix of shirts from middle school and high school.  Not a lot, so they are grouped together to fit the size of a twin mattress, with the extra wide borders as the drop.  (Nov 10)

Tyler M. T-shirt quilt

Tyler is a football player - offensive line.  The shirts that say "follow us" were for them only.  This is a twin bed size, with a black backing with grey swirls.  (Nov 10)
