TShirt Quilt

I love anything to do with my Alma Mater, Belgreen High School, so when Tressa asked if I would make a quilt with her daughters tshirts, I gladly took the job!  I love how her quilt turned out!

Tickled Pink Blog Hop! It's My Day!


Carla from Creatin' in the Sticks is hosting this fun blog hop and I am happy to be participating!  Hopefully this will nudge me back in to blogging!  This is day #2 so if you missed yesterday use the list below and go back and see their tickled pink projects too!  I have been working on customer work so I decided to show off 2 of the most recent finishes as they are both PERFECT for the hop!

The first thing I am showing is a quilt I made using a little girls clothing that she wore the 1st year of her life.  LOTS of pink and lots of little girls tickled giggles.  There were a lot of monogrammed items and I think it turned out great.

My next show and tell is my most current finish and although it may not have pink in it, it is full of HEARTS!  Perfect for Valentine's Day which was yesterday!  The fabrics are all Girl Scout fabrics and the young girls badges will be sewn to the quilt now that it is home.  I quilted the Scout Pledge in the lower solid yellow area below the bottom row of hearts.  I could kick myself for forgetting to take a final photo of the finished quilt once it was bound but I was trying to beat the post office closure the day I bound it so it got boxed and mailed.  I need to ask my client to send me a few pics of it for my files.  I do have this pic that I made to show her the quilt before it went on the frame for quilting.  I am very TICKLED with how it turned out!

Lastly, I want to show off something I made a few years ago when I was headed to a quilting retreat in New Hampshire.  We were all sent a piece of fabric that depicted something you might find there hence the cow fabric since New Hampshire is a Dairy state.  We were instructed to make something with it.  My readers from the past know of my love of pigs, so I made a pig and then made a cow to ride on him.  The challenge fabric is his cape.  I added a sign to the tail of the pig that reads New Hampshire or Bust!  The parasol was the perfect finishing touch!  I gifted him to a friend of mine there at the retreat who also has the same love for pigs.  She is from Iowa.  I asked her just recently if she still had the set and she said she did.  I hope this tickles you as much as it did me to make and gift it!

Thank you for joining me on my day and I hope you love my Tickled Pink Show and Tell!
