Driving from the south

Starting this week, the bridge 1/2 mile south of our house on Kingbird Avenue is being worked on, so the road is closed there.  If you are coming here from Newkirk, then you will need to take a 3 mile detour around the section on gravel.  To avoid that, you'll need to go to highway 18 and come 3 miles south on Kingbird to get to our house.

Custom-made t-shirt quilt

A custom-made t-shirt quilt.... there were over 50 quilt emblems, so I had to get creative to fit them all in.  I ended up making a graph paper diagram, using a 2-inch grid, and laid it all out before starting to make sure they would all fit in the 88x90 size. 

It was quilted with the Square Spiral pattern, and has gray plush Minky on the back. 

Bamboo pattern

Had a quilt come in that worked perfectly with the "Bamboo" pattern...

House quilt

A few of these house quilts have come my way to be quilted, this was one finished using the Baptist Fans pattern.

Ice cream cones

This is a quilt that I made, the ice cream cones are paper pieced.  It was a fun way to use up some scraps...

Zig zag quilt

Quilted with the pattern called, "Surf".

Lone Star Quilt

A striking Lone Star quilt, quilted with the pattern called "August Rain".

T-shirt quilts

I can turn your t-shirts into a memory quilt.  All you need to do is provide the shirts, and I will do the rest.

Traditional Layout:  Every shirt is cut to the same size, and is set in a grid format with strips of fabric between each shirt:

Contemporary Layout:  Shirts are cut to varying sizes, with random coordinating blocks between shirts.

Kids' strip quilt- used the pattern called "Autobahn".  This quilt had blue plush fabric on the back, and shows the pattern well.

This next one is A fun cowboy boot quilt, used the pattern called "Cowboy Corral" on this one.  The solid backing also shows off the pattern.

The leafy pattern called "Avatar" was used on this batik quilt.
