HOME OF AN AWARD WINNING QUILTER -
This is a journal of many of the quilts I've made - lots of t-shirt quilts and memory quilts. If you want to see a specific type of quilt, there is a list of "labels" down the right side that will take you to what you want to see.
I'd love to hear your comments on my projects. Feel free to post a note here (click on the word "comment" at the end of the post) , or you can contact me directly. See info on the above tab.
Thanks for visiting . . .

Cameron is a swimmer, and a big part of SWIMMING USA. So his shirts are all red/white/blue, and so is all of the fabric. I embroidered his name, high school, and year of graduation in one block, and his HS logo in another to fill in the empty blocks. Swimmers don't have as many t-shirts as other sports since they don't wear them for practice!! I added 3 borders - red/white/blue to get to the requested queen size quilt (90 x 107). He is going to the University of Notre Dame on a full ride for swimming (way to go Cameron!!), so the Notre Dame logo is in the middle of the back. (It's about 18" tall) I used a pantograph called "ebb and flow" for quilting, as it looks like waves in the water. May 2011.
