Skip's t-shirts #2

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.

Rally for the Cure

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.

Golf Towels

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.

Kid's Games Challenge Quilt

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
