Labor of Love


 I finished this shirt quilt this weekend and presented it last night. 

Quilt started HERE.  Continued HERE along with back story.

I finished the binding while out camping and thought it was a great setting for a photo.



It was a lot of mental work and was thrilled with the outcome and the reaction to this gift.

  3. The blue quilt is my favorite. The blue setting fabric is such a good choice. I had forgotten the story about the shirts already having been donated and how you got them back. Such a good ending to the story.

  10. I love the story--and the quilt turned out just great, Lori! I really like how you have mostly churn dash blocks, but a few others are scattered in there. I also love the mix of value placement. Makes the quilt so interesting. Nice job!

  21. What a great gift! Of course, I Love all the blues. It's kind of a shirt block quilt that doesn't really look like it wasn't made with a bunch of shirts (if that makes sense?!) Putting the blocks on point was a great idea too! cheers, cw
