T-Shirt Quilts and Kandinsky Roses

This Sun Bird made a boring quilt Fun for me.

 I'm making two Twin Sized Quilts for my parents' new home in Chickamauga, GA.  
I call them Memory Keeper quilts since they're based on clothing and fabrics found while cleaning out their old basement. The Log Cabins represent home. 

  The more personal a quilt the better since they can feel like a hug.
Mom and Dad's first Memory Keeper Quilt has five Kandinsky Roses
Within the two quilts there will be things from most members of our family.

This next quilt is a T-Shirt Commission for Michael Gray's 21st Birthday:

Twelve T-Shirts for Michael Gray make a twin sized Quilt
 This quilt has SeaGlass colors with Mom's Linen collection. All the blocks are 6.5" X 8.5" rectangles.  Kandinsky Roses grew on the sides.  The fruit fabric border is from Kaffe Fassett collective.
Paula's Linens are now a Quilt. 

Those three quilts were made with my 6.5" X 8.5" dream ruler.  The T-Shirt blocks are sized with 6X8 multiples.  It's easier to make a 66X80 (etc) finished quilt without having to wrestle the large size all at once.
