|FINISHED QUILT TOP|
ORIGINAL USE_cutting the hair off my sisters barbies.
CURRENT USE_cutting up t-shirts and fabric for quilt designs.
I have grown up in some ways, but refuse to completely.
This is the latest quilt added to my portfolio. One of my mom's customers wanted a t-shirt quilt made out of her late fathers clothing. As you have probably guessed, this is one of my more manly quilts. Jack Daniels and Harley Davidson, pretty much the manliest of combo's right? I'm sure there are some great stories behind all of this fabric. One of my favorite games while doing these t-shirt quilts is to make up stories about what you can infer about people by the type of clothes they had. I feel like I would have liked this guy. Some of the squares included range from "the worlds greatest grandpa" sweatshirt to the pocket off his Ford warehouse jumpsuit. The rest of the fabric consists of flannel shirts, dress pants and jackets, sweats, dress shirts, and shorts. Overall, I'm really happy with the way this top turned out. I hope my mom's client can look at the finished product, and just think of all the wonderful memories she has of her father that she can now cuddle up with every night. Especially now with the great Fall weather were having. So in the end, not only did I get to help someone add a beautiful piece of artwork to their home, of which they can look at reminisce about grandpa, but I also got to spend an awesome night with the momma working into the weeee hours of the morning. What a blessing!! Until next time............dan
