Becky’s T-shirt Quilt

Becky’s Quilt

Becky’s Quilt is complete.  As many of you know, when each member of our family graduates from high school, I create a t-shirt quilt for them.  I learn a lot about my neices and nephews.  I find out what activities they enjoyed, sports, musicals, first job, summer camp fun, and lots more.  No two quilts come out the same.  Becky loves pink.  I collaged the t-shirts with back and white fabrics with a spot of bright pink here and there.  Then I made a large border onthe top to cover the pillow area of the bed.  The other three borders have the same fabric, but much narrower.  I meandered around the t-shirts in the center and sstippled in the black section of the border.  The backing is puzzle-pieced with the left overs.  The overall size is approximately 78″ x 95″.

I was an Island Batik Ambassador for 2017. I enjoyed the challenge of designing new quilt patterns with this very special batik fabric collections. I teach free motion quilting via my Youtube videos and Doodle of the Month program which anyone can sign up for by sending me an email requesting to be added to the list. I enjoy transforming fabric into unique quilts, t-shirts into memory quilts, and photos to wall art. I joined Toastmasters to find my voice and learn to share my quilts and stories with others.
