Finally getting around to posting these

I made quilts this past fall for a fellow and his wife who were expecting twin girls. The fellow's mother had save a lot of his clothes - baseball t-shirts, jeans, a favorite pair of Michael Jordan shorts, etc. I made two quilts - one for each girl out of these items. Here are pictures of one of the quilts in process. They were a lot of fun to make and the father was thrilled with the results.







These are also for the twin girls. Their father is a huge Notre Dame fan which explains the colors. I rough cut the centers then just started improvising. I ripped the strips for the logs and then trimmed them with the rotary cutter as I pieced them together. I think orginally we were suppose to use just sissors - oops I'm bad! I was pleased with the way these came out and so was the father.







Have a happy and safe holiday!

What fun quilts! I think you're really brave to sew denim pants right in like that.
