T-shirt quilt


This is a T-shirt quilt I made for my grand daughter Rachel from her high school T-shirts.

I've now made quilts for each of my sisters and each of my children (except one- still thinking about yours, Lizz). My grandson Max has a quilt or two and this is Rachel's- only five grandchildren to go. Those won't all be T-shirt quilts. I need to consult with them about preferences.

Bird quilts





I made these with my sisters in mind. They each have a bird quilt and so do I.

banner of EMERGING STAR 3

40" x 80" reproduction on fabric of  EMERGING STAR 3
A church called to suggest a banner from Emerging Star 3 and after learning some new tricks on Photoshop and working with a great sign company, this is the result. I am pleased with it and so is St Elizabeth Seton in the Chicago area.

Another disappearing nine patch


This lap quilt is for my son Tom.

Two more Brocante quilts



These brocante pattenrs alternate with nine patch blocks. The top lap quilt is for my son Steve. The one on the bottom is for my friend, Kattie. The bottom one incorporates four friendship stars and a North Star in the center along with the nine patch blocks.
