T-shirts for Jim's wife

Uh oh.  I hope I'm not spilling a secret here.  Jim contacted me about making a quilt for his wife from their son's shirts. 

 I think this is my favorite.
This was a dress shirt, and the facings of the cuffs and collar band were of a different, although similar print.  I thought it would be fun to cut off the cuff, and turn it to the "outside" then stitch it to the shirt.

Cheer shirts and uniforms for Jackie's oldest

 Drat!  I forgot to get a photo of the quilt before Jackie and her husband came to pick it up, so I asked them to hold it up so I could get a picture for the website.  They did a great job, but I must have moved when taking the photo, and now it's blurry.
Here is one of her uniforms for cheer.  This was a new challenge to try to incorporate such heavy fabrics.  Learned that my girl (quilting machine) didn't like going over the heavy fabric, and this jersey was somewhat distorted in places.  Live and learn.

I really wish that I had a photo of the bottom left of the quilt.  We took a pair of the panties that she wore under her skirt and appliqued them to a block.  Zebra stripe with sparkles.  Really fun!

Owls by me for charity

 Quick!  Find the "humility block"!  Those are the blocks that you intentionally make a mistake in because only God is perfect.

This is one of the quilts that ended up starting out as a king sized mystery quilt.  I wasn't happy with my color choices, didn't like the lengthy piecing, so finally bailed on it.  Now I've got all these blocks, and no plan to finish the project.  What to do?  Charity quilts!
This is a new panto that I don't have listed in my pantos yet.  Owls with leaves.  Really cute.  I used a variegated thread in the top, and a a dark green in the bobbin to really show up on the bright yellow backing. 

 I was giggling to myself because it was "Cyber Monday", and I was on a bike ride with friends. Kept seeing police officers in cars.  Just driving past me, doing their jobs.  I interpreted this as my late father, and former cop with City Of Portland, telling me that I needed to get this quilt donated to the police and soon!  I'd had the quilt done for a few days by then.  Sure enough, after dropping off the quilt at the police, I stopped seeing so many police officers driving around.  Thanks for the nudge Dad!

I just looked. I'm up to 3 quilts for charity from this one planned quilt so far.  I think when I was looking in a bag for another quilt, I found another quilt top from this same grouping though.  I REALLY hope that I've found all the blocks and got them all made into tops, but one never knows what you can find in the sewing room closet.
