Here are some photo’s of Mary Jo’s Memorial Quilt made out of her dad’s shirts. The quilt is going to be a special Christmas gift for her mom!

The little shirt blocks were inspired by a quilt designed by Sarah S. of Sandwich, Il.  She is planning on producing a pattern based on her design and when she does, I’ll post info here for those of you’d who’d like the pattern.  It makes a really spectacular block out of shirt fabrics.

This was the last of my Christmas deadline quilts.  I’m shutting down for the holiday so I can enjoy my nine year old triplets and the magic of the season.

Merry Christmas!
