My First T-shirt Quilt

The 'quilting' process began on July 4th, 2013.
This is the top with 20 t-shirts from Andrea's school days.

This is the back.  
I got a deal on some polka dot pillow shams @ .49 cents each. 
I took them apart and sewed 9 of them together to make the back.
I also used some of the smaller pieces for the binding. 

Here are a couple of the blocks up close.

The completed quilt!

A Quilt for Baby Boy Earl #3

Here's the quilt I made for my great nephew.
The printed squares are from a fabric storybook panel.
I hand quilted the printed squares and machine quilted
in the sashings and borders.

The back of the quilt has the baby's name and birth info
machine embroidered in yellow thread.

I believe he likes it!

Wedding Gifts - Towels

I used the Empire monogram font for all of these towel sets.

I enlarged it to about 4 inches for the bath towels
and reduced it to about 3 inches for the hand towels.

These gray towels were done for Hilary & John
who will be married in December.

The thread colors are black and yellow.

I also embroidered first names on the wash cloths.
(John has one also but it's not in the photo)
