Man, this sure was a tiresome project. My machine was not happy about it at all, but I am finally finished with it. There are 56 squares in it to make it a generous queen, and the tshirts that I got were great. They really made it a fun quilt. The label and the backing color were both specified by my customer (a great, really understanding woman who trusted me- a complete stranger- with her son's memories... yikes). I think it turned out pretty nice, though, and I am looking forward to tackling the next one that comes my way!

I have started working on another tshirt blanket and I am so excited! It only took about 3 hours to cut everything out which is a new record for me! There are 56 squares that I am using to make a queen size quilt, so it was a lot of cutting. Anyway, I am really looking forward to getting it sewn together and quilted so I can give it back to the lady I am making it for. Hopefully it will be a quick one! We will have to see how it goes though.

Here is a quilt I just finished for a friend of mine. She gave me this quilt back in January and I finally got around to finishing it for her. She had the quilt all put together and the quilting inside the squares with the girls was all hand-done by her. I just did the colored squares/rectangles, and I added the color on the white border (it was all white when she gave it to me but the space was too big to quilt nicely, so I decided to add the color to break it up a little bit). She did it differently than I normally make quilts, so that added an extra challenge, but it was fun and now it is nice to finally see the finished product. Thank you for letting me do this for you L.A.!

Here is the first tshirt blanket I made for a customer. The girl I made it for was awesome and totally trusted me, which I really appreciated. This is what a blanket will look like if you order one, at least more like this than the other tshirt blanket I made. If you are interested just let me know.

So I have now decided, due to a lot of interest, to make and sell customized t-shirt blankets. I am in the process of making my second one for a girl whom I never met before she contacted me. I will post pictures of that one as soon as I am done, but it is pretty exciting! So if you are interested let me know and we will see if I can help you out with preserving your memories (and your t-shirts) with a special blanket you can have for years. Feel free to email me if you want more information or have any questions about anything (that includes the baby blankets as well!).

Hooray! I finished my first girly baby blanket! This one gave me tons of trouble in the beginning but it was totally worth it because it is so cute! If I have a little girl somewhere down the road she is going to for sure get a blanket just like this one. I don't have anyone to give this to, though, so if you are interested in purchasing it let me know. Or if you want one that is custom colors (only red hearts or something like that) I will be happy to make you one. This one costs $100. Enjoy!

Here is the first baby blanket I have made that is not for someone I know. It is hopefully going to be sold at an arts and crafts fair (or off this website?) for about $70. That sounds like a lot but it is all made by hand(or sewing machine as the case may be)and really good quality, so not only do the materials cost money but my time too (though if I charged for all my time I know for sure the blankets would be WAY too expensive). If you are interested let me know and I hope you enjoy looking through what I have made.
