Orca Bay

This is a Bonnie K. Hunter mystery quilt.  It has almost 4000 pieces, and I made it entirely from shirts.  I saved all the shirt backs to use on the quilt back.  Photos show the feathered quilting on the back - I couldn't get it to photograph well on the front.  It's 78 x 87.  This got an honorable mention at the String Along Quilt Guild  2012 show.

Sneakin' In

8 of these blocks were from the BOM for my guild.  I made the rest to make this 56 x 68.  This will go to our charity  - Comfort Quilts.  I quilted it with the Baptist Fan pattern.  It's kind of hard to see on the backing, but it's there.  They are wider apart than normal - just to get it DONE!! The back is pretty crazy - it was a donation from a customer, and I promised it would go in a charity quilt.  The name comes from the fact that I did it sneaking in an hour here or there between all the customer quilts.

Skip's t-shirts

This one has been done for almost a month, but didn't get it posted till now.  It's is the first of 3 t-shirt quilts for Skip's family.  He was the swim coach for our local high school for almost 30 years and much loved by all.  He was recently inducted into the Hall of Fame at the high school.  This first quilt is for his wife, the next two for his daughters.  All 3 quilts are to be hung, so they are not bed sizes, just sized to fit the shirts that each had picked out.  This one is 62 x 69, and the sashing fabric is also on the back.  I did a free motion quilting that looks like pond water - tried to stick with a water theme to go with the swimming.
