T shirt quilt, Geese in a ring and a dress

I can finally show the “secret” T-shirt quilt!

Ning graduation yesterday and after that we met for lunch with her family from Singapore and I gave her the quilt

(She in turn gave me a BIG gift card to JoAnn’s WOOHOO! you know I’ll use that quickly! ha ha)

Here’s the shirt segments being sewn into rows

There are some FUNNY and cool shirts in this!

Joshua 1:9 (my embroidery machine can’t do a : sign)

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."

P1030346

The geese in a ring quilt is done too and I LOVE how it turned out

P1030441

I started quilting the borders and in the white border I quilted pebbles then continued that on the white background, I LOVE it!

It didn’t take THAT long since the quilt is only 46” squared, but I don’t think I would do it on a large quilt.

P1030442

On the border and the setting triangles I did McTavishing- my first try, I like doing it! it was fun!

Here’s the back with a hanging sleeve already- just missing a label.

What a wonderful list of achievements! I love the circle geese quilt, and the quilting on it is great.

I love how the Geese In A Ring turned out--nice McTavishing!
Cute little girls in their Mommy-made dresses. I used to sew all of my daughters' clothing, but that seems like a hundred years ago now. : )

The t-shirt quilt looks great. How nice that she gave you a gift certificate. I love the geese in a ring quilt and your quilting is always stunning. Your girls are darling in their dresses. Such pretty girls. I always smile when you show pics of Sonja. She seems like such a happy little girl.
