Type Quilt
Style Whimsical on

What was your source for this quilting project? Other on

What materials did you use? I used the fabrics of kids & grandkids vests, jackets, P.J.'s, shirts & robes and the fabrics Mom would like best. My husband did the artwork & printed the T-shirts & sweatshirts. The backing is southwest embroidery & sienna quilt. on

What are you most proud of? To tie the quilt. I had the stroke 15 years ago & doing the tying is pretty hard. on

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used muslin for the T-shirt. on

My sister & brother-in-law are seen with Mom's T-shirt & sweatshirt quilt. They live in Eureka, MT & what better way to show snowy mountains, Mom's sightseeing places & blood donations. They're ecstatic!!
