Megan's Memories

This is the third t-shirt quilt I've done for Megan.  One for high school, one for college, and this one is a little bit of everything.  It's 84 x 88

I did an all-over quilting pattern - some swirls, straight lines, and jagged curves.

The backing is red dots, and I used the same fabric for the binding

Joan's Applique

Joan did a beautiful job on this applique.  The stitches are totally hidden.
  It's 52 x 52, and will be a  wall hanging 

She wanted a filler in the background -

and cross hatching in all the baskets -

lines 1" apart on the large center basket

lines 1/2 inch apart on the 4 corner baskets

I did simple fills in the 2 inner borders -

she pieced the backing from her stash -

Charity Rag Quilt

I made this for my guild's favorite charity.  Quilts are given to children that are taken from their homes for various reasons.  Teen Mom's are also allowed to purchase them with points earned through their program.

I made a flower quilt for my Mom and these are leftover fabrics, as well as some that I decided not to use.  It's 60 x 72.

I put raggy seams on both sides rather than just on the front.

I bought yardage for the back because I didn't have enough fabric to cut 2 of each block.  So the back is all the same.  Kind of nice to have it different.
