    KP was asked to make a quilt for her friend. It is made from her deceased husbands shirts. K was able to get 2 quilts made from the shirts and she did a wonderful job. I think these are some of the prettiest memory quilts I have seen....I am honored to be a part of it.

    I think all of my designs are pretty simple...I wanted to highlight the shirt material and let that shine and pop out. I also wanted to break up border designs from the center...so different designs in each section..texture. I love texture. I tend to do that with quilting .....and also with my personal fabric choices.


    I quilted both of these quilts on my INNOVA. No pantograph or computer quilting.

    I used Hobbs polydown batting in both quilts.

    Thanks for looking.

    What beautiful quilts. I can just imagine the customer when she sees how much you have added to her beautiful design. I love those stars. Not sure of the name of them..

    Both are beautiful. Charisma, I do believe that you could take a gunny sack and make a show stopper out of it.
    Fabulous work.

    There's going to be one tearful lady, when she sees these two incredible quilts.

    As always, your quilting is the crowning touch!
