Quilt #55

First quilt of 2019. This one is for B.J.’s birthday. He loves the Marvel Super Heroes, especially Spider-Man.

Quilt #54

This year’s Christmas quilt was a birthday present from The Birthday Gang. I thought it was striking because it is primarily grays and tans instead of the usual bright Christmas colors. The quilting was custom to go with the quilt. Although it is not the largest quilt I’ve done, it was the most expensive to have quilted. I really like it.

Quilt #53

This is my first t-shirt quilt. It was made for Randy and Kathy Clay’s daughter, Becca. It is made from the ACU shirts she collected while in school there, 39 in total. I really liked how it turned out. In fact, I like it so much I have started collecting shirts for my own t-shirt quilt.

Quilt #52

A real simple quilt with an awesome quilting pattern. I picked up the fabric in Taos, NM. I couldn’t find any souvenir playing cards so I made this quilt instead. The long-armer used sugar skulls for the quilting.

Quilt #51

A little different take on the “old shirts” quilt. I wanted to do something a little different and with tools instead of mustaches. This, however, is the last quilt made with those old shirts. All the little pieces are either in a quilt or have been thrown away. They were all over the house.

Quilt #50

This milestone quilt is for my granddaughter, Gracie. Right now she is into pink.

Quilt #48

And yet another quilt done this month.  This one is for Zachary Johnson.  I made him a baby quilt when he was born but then I realized that boys aren’t going to treasure baby stuff for very long.  So, like his brothers, I made a Seuss play/throw quilt that he can grow with.
