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



and finally into a top


There are some FUNNY and cool shirts in this!


Here the quilt is all done. Quilted and bound.



I did a big meandering all over


Backing is a solid grey


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."


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


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.


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.


and some close ups



Saturday evening I made a dress for Sonja

simplicity 4661 an old pattern I had from when my other daughter was little



Here are the Lee women Smile

all ready for church and then lunch with Ning’s family

( I made Solveig’s dress too a year or two ago)

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.
