Yep, they are mine, ALL mine... Custom made by Mark and they are removable when my handsome little man leaves. See the tie/ties on bottom one? It's so nice when I put my order in and the finish product turns out spectacular. I'm a lucky lady!
When I was in Texas a year ago and visited Laurieana's wonderful shop, I bought 5 of these huge clips! I knew right away what I wanted to do with them. Attach them to a board and hang quilts from them. I finally did it!
So, now my "everlasting wreath" quilt can now hang. Plus, I can switch it out now for different holidays. Yay!
Needs a good ironing after being hauled around in my trunk all that time.. I never forgot about it, just could never find the right color backing for it.
This guy, well, he was made 3 years ago! I was never thrilled with it and could never find a good match for it. Almost odd colors...Now that Christmas fabric is making its debut, I starting looking and whoala! Found one that would do.
Gonna make it fun and Christmassy. It was a quilt along on a blog from the happy quilter. It's called "star surround". Don't quote me on that, like I said, it's been 3 yrs! Haha. Someone may get a quilt for a Christmas present... We'll see...
Well, I did it! Only took me a couple of years...wasn't on the top of my favorite to do list as you can see. Made a quilt for each of Mark's brothers and sister. They are made from his dad's shirts.
Phew.... Finished them up a while ago but never did post. I think it was because I was having issues with BlogPress. So, I made some of these....
And, 1 of these...
Then, 2 of these. One for each of my kids. These were some of the left over blocks. All the quilts were personalized to each sibling with a note, picture and the dates. These 2 blocks go along with the blocks I made when my dad passed away. I made up blocks with left overs from a quilt using his shirts also. They were put into a photo album.
