These are the t-shirts of one of our local high school and now college tennis players.  What a great collection of school and tennis camp shirts and tournaments.  He has even spent some time playing tennis in Romania!!  It's a queen size -90  x 104.  Same fabric on the back as the sashings and binding.  I quilted it with a great masculine panto. (bottom photo)   The top two photos are top and bottom halves - couldn't fit it all in one photo.

Rag Quilt

A great "quilt as you go" project for charity.  Uses up batting scraps, as well as smaller pieces of left over fabrics.  Seams are snipped at 1/4" intervals after sewing so they "rag" in the washer.  This will go to my guild's charity group - it supports a children's organization.    36 x 48.

Wedding quilt

This one was made as a wedding gift for a family member.  I took a chance on the fabric patterns, but they had a room with animal prints in their previous home, so I was hoping it would still work.  They both love it, so a good choice.   Plain black on the back with a simple meander quilting pattern.   54 x 62    Updated 6/23 - Just got back from their wedding on the beach in Florida and a visit to their home.  The quilt is proudly displayed on a chair back.  The fabrics fit perfectly with their other accessories with the same theme - even the rug.  They love the quilt and it will certainly get used!

Madalyn's T-shirts

These are Madalyn's t-shirts.  There is a great sampling of her enitre life, not just athletic shirts.  She chose the great colors of lime green on the front and electric blue for the backing.  They really go together well.  Size is a long twin  72 x 97.  I quilted some wonky daisys and leaves.
