Another Shirt Quilt and a Baby Quilt

This wall hanging is going to be a gift for my MIL's minister at her church. He spent many hours visiting with my FIL when he was sick and I wanted to thank him for all of the support he gave to all of us with a little quilt made from my FIL's shirt fabric.  I have had this idea in my head for a few months now but have not had any time to make it until now. The top and the back are both done and I will be doing the quilting this weekend at the Quilting Day that one of my guilds has planned. I think he will be surprised. I hope he has a space on the wall in his office to hang it.
This is a baby gift that I am quilting myself. It is fairly large to be doing this on my DSM but I am managing. I don't suppose that the baby will notice when the spacing between some of the quilting lines is a bit scrunchy in places...  I will show a picture of the completed quilt when it is done. So far, I have quilted about half of the quilt. The back of the quilt is orange with dots.
I think I have some turquoise fabric somewhere around here for the binding...
Here is my overdue stash report...
Fabric used since my last stash report:  5.75 yards
Total fabric used this year: 6.45 yards
Fabric added to the stash since my last report: .75 yards (a Christmas gift!)

Net fabric used this year: 5.7 yards

Happy Sewing!


  1. The wall hanging turned out so nice, Gail. What size square did you settle on? I like your wavy quilt lines, the little one will, too ~

  2. Hope you heal quickly. You are probably never going to hear the end of this. I think the quilt was worth it.
