I made this quilt out of my brother's shirts for his girlfriend Linda. My brother died unexpectedly in January 2014. She was devastated as we all were. His name was on his work shirts and I have one little square that I cut out and put on it with his name. The quilt turned out so much better than I anticipated. I just have to get it quilted. I ordered a special backing for it. I can't wait to send it to her.
My friend Vivian retired from the hospital so I made her 2 pillows. She loved them. She was such a nice person. She was always so pleasant. Loved her.
This was literally the first time I ever made button holes. They turned out great. I was so impressed with myself. So pretty.
I used K-mart pillows to stuff them. It is a super cheap way to go. I did simple machine quilting on both of them.
Check this out! I started this probably in 1988. I got it out and worked on it twice since then. I have to finish the log cabin blocks.
Look at these calico fabrics. I could gag. So not my style right now. I lost the directions to this long, long ago.
That is why it never got finished. I googled it and found the quilt but not the directions. I'm going to wing it to finish it.
