Wonderful Wednesday - T1 + T2 = DONE!!!

If you are on Ravelry's Quilting Knitters group, you may have already heard the GOOD news...

TWINS!!!

Four months late or two weeks early, depending how you look at it.  :P


What ARE you talking about, Joyful??


Well, T1 and T2 are FINALLY finished!!!  (On the same day... since they ARE for twins!)


When I accepted this commission, I had other projects in the works.  The original goal for these two quilts was Christmas, but nothing was set in stone.  (And, a lucky thing, too!!)  Those other projects took WAY more time than expected.  The revised goal was in time for a May birthday.


Whew!!  Mission accomplished!!!


T1 is Jacob's quilt.  There are shirts from preschool to present.  It includes items from elementary school, middle school, high school, and college.  Sports, activities, and honors are well represented.  It even includes a shirt from his first "real" job.  Have a look:


70" x 99"


The same with T2 (Kennedy's quilt)...  Shirts dating back to preschool have been included in her quilt, too.  School sports and extracurricular activities along the way are showcased, along with shirts baring meaningful phrases and personal accomplishments.  I used a different setting for this quilt:


72" x  91"


Four years ago, I made a quilt for Jacob and Kennedy's older brother, Michael.  Here is a LINK to his quilt so (if you're new to my blog or can't recall seeing his quilt) you can see that one, too.

Thank you, Jackie, for trusting me with MORE of you family memories!! I hope that I have captured those memories in a pleasing manner, in quilts that you can be proud of and that the "kids" will enjoy for years to come.  Each quilt is as different from one another as your offspring are completely different individuals.

Until next time...
 Vive la difference!!!

  1. These turned out so great and are so inspirational to me. I haven't cut into my bag of pink ribbon T-shirts yet (because I obviously have too much other WIP food on my plate right now), but I'm anxious now to catch up with you. :)
