A new baby is on the way (or maybe here by now) for Sharyle's family. Sweet balloons appliqued and a fussy cut Noah's ark animals in all of the balloon "baskets". Quilted with a panto of balloons, although difficult to see on the right side.
Joanne and her friends got together to make a baby quilt for another friend. Everyone seemed to use their favorite skills, so we've got piecing, applique, embroidery all together. Lucky little kiddo to get this one.
Carol's family is expecting a new baby soon, so here's a sweet growth chart and a panel. Neither of us can remember the name of the lamb character.
I have to hand it to Carol for making all of those pinwheels to go around the panel.
I love t-shirt quilts. It's so much fun to see the memories that people have collected over the years. Lena pieced this one for her son Nico who's in college back east, and is cold. He also misses his bunnies, so they are included in the quilt too.
|The bunnies "helped" by chewing a small hole in the quilt before Lena got it to me.|
|Here are the bunnies. Lena told me their names, and I have forgotten. Sorry Lena! Don't know which one was the culprit for chewing the quilt, but I love that they are included in it for Nico.|
So, quilted it up, and off to the police! Hurray!
First let me say that I totally stole this idea from "Quilt Loft" in Albany, OR. I had seen the quilt initially about 2 years ago, but while on a bike ride in Sept. of this year I saw it again and was really inspired. I've got all these leftover patriotic fabrics from another project, and it seemed the perfect time to use them.
