3 quilts from Bill's t-shirts
I made 3 quilts for Bill's adult children. He was in the Navy, so I quilted anchors on all 3 of them. The first one is Dan's - he wanted some photos added to his, and wanted "Carolina Blue" on the front:
I framed the photos in a different blue so they would stand out better. I centered 3 anchors across that row, and meandered around them. The rest of the quilt is all anchors. Dan's is 57 x 68.
The backing fabric is red with small stars:
This photo shows the full quilt pattern. I'm not sure why it keeps loading sideways :(
The second quilt is for Rose. She wanted a blue front, and a patriotic back.
Rose's is 59 x 68
The third quilt is for Bill, who was also in the Navy. He wanted a red front, and I found "navy" fabric for the backing:
Bill's is 59 x 62
Bill got the "navy" shirt in his. This was front and back
