Quilts pieced and quilted by Betty Baker.
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!

Don't have any idea what I did with this one! (Sep 2004 - found
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.

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