ZTA T-Shirt Quilt

This is a t-shirt quilt Lindsey and I put together from her old ZTA (Zeta Tau Alpha) t-shirts. Rather than the usual setting where each block is cut the same size, some blocks are smaller and a bit random in size. Used a soft denim for filler blocks.

This is machine pieced, and custom quilted on my longarm. Quilted in OSU Orange thread!

This block of the month, is named "Country Garden".  This was a fun quilt was machine pieced and hand appliqu?d; hand quilted.

Jul 2004 - I put this one somewhere in the move to Houston.  Don't have any idea what I did with this one! (Sep 2004 - found it!)

OK, everyone has made at least one quilt from the Yellow Brick Road pattern. This is the first one that I tried. It is made with bright and colorful Flannels and is just the softest thing. 

Pieced and quilted by Betty.

This one went to Jon's dad in Otis, Kansas for Christmas (2004).

"Tennessee Waltz".  This quilt is somewhat scrappy, and was made for  Rachael.   She laid out all of the blocks, and ironed as I sewed them together.  She then thought that I should be able to hand quilt it as quickly as we got the top put together! 

Hand Quilted by Betty

Beware the child that comes home from college and sweetly says "Mom, I would sleep so much better under one of your special quilts at school".   

 That means you only have about 3 months to get the entire quilt finished before she heads back to school!   "Wyoming Whirligig" - from  Kansas City Star in 1936 and again QuiltMaker May/June '98.
Bettys Quilt Great Grandma Hatties Quilt

The left hand picture is a 'new' quilt made for Lindsey a few years ago.  She wanted to use her great-great-grandmothers well-worn quilt, (the one on the right), so I promised to make one similar.  We used some old feedsacks that her great grandmother gave me in the center squares, the rest are reproduction fabrics.  "Trip Around the World".

Pieced and hand quilted by Betty.

Note: There are frogs quilted around the outside green border.
