Quilt #45

My friend, Bobby, gave me an idea for a quilt for Movember. I decided to do one for him too. Assuming he doesn’t look at this website he won’t know about this one until he actually receives it.

The main 18 blocks are made from old mens shirts that I picked up at resale shops. It was an interesting quilt to make.

Quilt #44

I did this one for Valentine’s. It is one of the few that I designed and selected the fabric all on my own. I did the pattern before I left Houston. I collected the fabric over the last two years.

Quilt #43

Yea!!! A blue Christmas quilt. This is quilt #43 for me. It was a booger even though it should have been fairly simple. And did I mention it’s blue!! 🙂 This is most likely the last one this year. Longarmers are about to get slammed with quilts for Christmas gifts. I’ll try to work on some new tops but they may have to wait until January before they can go to the longarmer.

Quilt #42

Another late graduation quilt.  This one is for my nephew Jonathan.  His favorite color is purple.  That made finding fabric pretty difficult.  I got lucky on that backing though!

Quilt #41

Made this quilt for Kaleb’s high school graduation. It’s a little late but it’s now done. Kaleb was the first grandchild of Rick and Virginia Johnson. I still remember being down in Corpus Christi to sing when they got the call that Kaleb was born. Some happy people that evening.

Quilt #40

This is the first quilt I’ve made in over a year.  I made it for the young man who has come to live with us, Linkohn.  He picked out all the fabric himself. The backing is a woven fabric. It is really soft and made for snuggling.



Quilt #39

Here is quilt #39.  You’ll notice that this is the same as #38 except for the border.  When I ordered the fabric this summer I was between hospital stays and not thinking at my best.  I ordered twice as much inner fabric as I needed and only half of what I needed for the border.  This border is pretty cool though.  The quilt is for a little boy at church.  I think he’ll like it.  🙂
