Here is my list of 15 custom quilts that I have been working on everyday since early September.
1. Granny's Rag Quilt: I made this quilt using the housecoats of a grandmother for her granddaughter. I thought this was such a sweet, beautiful keepsake but this was a very challenging quilt. It's an optical illusion really. It looks easy but it was spatially-a real headache.
2. & 3. Black and White Baby Rag Quilts: (with red embroidered square). These were made pretty fast. I wasn't sure how the red middle square would look but I loved how they turned out.
4. Black and White Throw-size Rag Quilt: Even though I've done a dozen of these black and whites, I made this one a little different on the back. I made black on black and white on white wihich resulted in stripes on the back.
5. 6. & 7. Three 20-square T-shirt Quilts: Still in the fusing stage
8. Foxes Baby Rag Quilt: I made this for a very nice young mama in KY.
9. The Methodist Cross and Flame Rag Quilt: I did not want to do another quilt like this because the first was very hard to do but I finally relented. The hard part is done but it still needs one more row of white and a stained glass fabric border.
10. 11. & 12. Small, Medium and Large Handkerchief Rag Quilts: The only one I have finished is the Large Hanky Quilt, the others are works in progress. I was given 184 gorgeous vintage hankies in beautiful condition to make these quilts. I fell in love with the first one but I'm really looking forward to the medium hanky quilt.
14. Polo T-shirt Quilt 30 squares: What a great idea this t-shirt quilt is! It's made with all Ralph Lauren Polo shirts and bordered by plain simple navy strips. This quilt looks very high end classy. I finished the top so far and I'm thinking about putting a plaid flannel on the back. (That's a pair of cat eyes in the bottom right. He's always trying to get into pictures.)
15. Rock and Roll T-shirt Quilt 16 squares: I will be finishing the quilting on this one today. I think the black and white check borders really set these shirts off in a very cool way.
