Couldn't decide which direction to go with this post, so I'm wingin' it today.... Here' a picture of the back of Marcy's Purdue t-shirt quilt, the design that we finally ended up using is Retro Hearts by Anne Bright (a very, very talented lady). Most, but not all of the designs I use are from Anne, I really do love her creativity. Here's a look at the Retro Hearts design on the back of Marcy's quilt.
T-shirt quilts can be a lot of fun and a great way to use all of those shirts that you've collected and get them out of the way and into a useful, fun quilt. Here is one of the blocks that you can definitely appreciate if you are a Purdue University fan.
I've packed her quilt up and she's got it with her, I'm hoping that she has (or takes) the time to finish the binding. She did manage to get it stitched on while she was here, so she's left with the hand stitching yet to do. Here's the note I got from her after the box arrived.....
Everyone was ooohing and ahhhing over it! Thank YOU so much for the beautiful quilting and for shipping it! I'll have to bring it in May (hopefully bound) to take pictures! I also saw your blog post about spoiling me and it made me tear up at work!
I love you!!!! xoxoxoxoxoxooxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox
Well, she makes me cry too..I am so proud of her. I've posted more pictures of Marcy's quilt at the other blog, here's the link:
The softer side of this post...I'm in a strange mood today because tomorrow I am delivering two quilts to an elderly man who contacted me after the death of his wife. He found the quilts that she had made, but not finished, she was a hand quilter. More on the story of these two quilts after I return them to their owner. But it has me thinking....who, if anyone will finish all of those projects that I have laying about?? Yes, a very sobering thing to think about...
thanks for checking on me,
love to hear what you've got to say..........
