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.
This is the second of three quilts for Skip's family. The cornerstones are from a pair of green shorts. This one has leopard print fabric on the back for Mary. She came up a great label for the back - she spelled out her dad's name vertically - then came up with words that describe her dad - one for each letter of his name. It's 6'5w x 6'8h and has a rod pocket for hanging. You can go here to see the first one.
These are "crying towels" that I donated for the last place team in our Rally for the Cure event held at Beechwood Golf Course in Laporte. We had 48 women particpate, so a great turnout. All proceeds are donated to the Susan G. Komen foundation.
These two are for customers. The green one is for a woman in my league who says she has trouble hitting fairways, so she created this fictional organization and delcared herself president!! A friend ordered it for her.
Our guild had a challenge to generate charity quilts for the children's organization that we support. We were given a fat quarter of the black print fabric that runs the diagonal in the photo, and had to create a quilt that showed kids playing games, or portrayed games, or was a game itself. I bought fabric with differet balls on them - basketballs, soccer balls, baseballs, footballs, and of course, golf balls and tees. The top and bottom borders are from some leftover Las Vegas fabric - representing the ADULT games!! The quilts were presented at the July meeting and voted on, with the winners getting gift cards to area quilt shops. 40 x 52
