Bud Dodge is a dedicated husband, father, uncle, and PMC athlete! His wife ordered a queen sized quilt from me. The challenge was to incorporate 22 years worth of t-shirts from riding in the PMC. This ride is from Sturbridge to Provincetown. He has some t-shirts from Heavy Hitter fundraising and some his wife or daughters wore as volunteers at a bike stop.
Not only did he give me t-shirts, but there were PMC socks too! It was quite the puzzle. This is the first t-shirt quilt in which I used wool batting. I love quilting with wool! It was a breeze on my Sweet 16 from Handi-Quilter.
Bud picked up the quilt tonight! His smile stretched across his face. He has so many memories. Memories not just of having survived the long ride, but of people and friendships and love. It was such a pleasure to create this memory quilt for Bud.
