A memory Quilt for Marley

Let me start this post by saying I dont do T-shirt quilts. 
I have done memory quilts with flannel pj pants and shirts

Last summer the sexton of our church passed away. His wife got in contact with my go-to Long Arm Quilter- Pam. Pam then referred her to me as she realized I had a connection. (and gave me a heads up). 

When Stephanie contacted me about making her daughter a memory quilt with Donald's t-shirts I was ready to say yes. 
I was a bit nervous because they are someones precious memories and I didnt want to mess it up. 
After a couple days of cutting the seams off the t-shirts I was ready to start figuring out common sizes i could cut things and how they would all fit together. 

I decided to make the different rows different heights and sew them together and have different widths. 

I got its sewn together at a quilting sew bee

I sent it to the quilters before I went to my sisters in ottawa for a week. 

Here it is finished

A quilt for Lydia

My youngest sister had her second baby on my birthday!! 37 years apart :)

I made this quilt a fair bit bigger than my normal baby quits. The older my kids get the bigger the baby quilts are as I realize how much nicer the larger size is. I didnt get a final measurement on this though



Her older brother Benjamin LOVES this quilt and will likely be using it for a bit first :)


I was able to go visit them when Lydia was 1 month old.  




He really loves it

He will be moving into a toddler bed in the next few months and it fits perfectly!!

A quilt for John

My family doctor and fellow church member and Sunday school teacher and his family are moving away.

He has been the family doctor for the past 9ish years and has always been very accessible to us. We also recently joined his Sunday school class at church.

We loved having him for both so I got an idea to make him. Lap quilt for their new home.

His wife once approached me about the idea of making him a bicycle themed quilt but we never did it so I used that prompt to mark him this quilt.

I got bikes for the quilting (by Pam Bowman)

All finished

A quilt for Mike and Jessica

I saw on Facebook that one of my fb friends in town adopted a baby boy and I wanted to make them a baby quilt.

I found this cute panel in my stash

and Mike is the owner of the local Chick-fil-A so I had to use the cow spots on the back!

A quick and easy baby quilt with an awesome reaction when I gave it to him today.

Twin quilts for Adrienne

Dave and Adrienne are friends from church and are pregnant with twin girls. 

They are due in July so we had a baby shower for them today. 




 I read in the bulletin two weeks ago that they were having the shower and I had not started baby quilts for them.

I quickly asked Adrienne what they might do for a Nursery and she replied probably grey with touches of light pinks and such.



 I came home and realized I had the prefect fabric from a quilt show from January!

I used the same fabrics for the blocks and binding. I was lucky to find two  matching sashings and backs in my stash!
 One feels more playful and the other more sedate. We shall see if her children end up like that ;)
 I made the plan and put them together in just over a week!
I pulled them out of the dryer this morning!




 They liked them so much that they insisted on a photo with me with them.
