New Quilts



I have two new quilts to show you. The first is a baby quilt -- the first one I've ever made for our own baby (for one of the twins coming in February or March). I poured a lot of love into that one.

The second quilt is a T-shirt quilt made from a friend's collection. Because she grew up all over the world, she said, she never had a hometown: her T-shirt collection became her "home." She was unable to part with any of her shirts! So here they all are in quilted wall-hanging form. The two themes are sports and world travel -- you can see this both in the quilt design and in the logos on the shirts. The baseball and globe circles are fitted into an infinity sign to represent her spiritual beliefs and (according to me) how she can do anything and everything she puts her mind to.
