A friend asked me if I would make a baby quilt from her late husbands shirts for his 1st grandchild. I was nervous but I said yes!
I've had this fabric in my stash for a long time and never had the perfect quilt to use it in. Until now:)
Stars are one of my favorite blocks to make. I used the shirts for the star tips and the cornerstones.
The center is a picture of Grandpa Jim.
I quilted it on my grace frame and it turned out pretty good if I say so myself. The few quilts I did before I had trouble with the tension on my machine. No problems with this quilt.
I had it done for a week or more before Barbee picked it up I kindof miss it now:) It's right up there with my favorite quilts.
I used more of the shirts to make a doll and a couple of pillows.
Mom and Grandpa Jim.
Mom and Dad.
I've made several of these dolls. This is the second quilt and doll I have made from a loved ones shirts. It is an honor to be trusted with the task....JMF
