I made this quilt for a member of our church. He came to me about 3 years ago and asked if I could make a T-Shirt quilt. Told him I never had made one but I would try. It took a year for him to get the T-shirts to me and another year for me to get the nerve to try making it. Finally cut the shirts up then thought about it for another 6 months.

This man is truly God's Servant (which is monogrammed on the top). While I was making this, all I could think about is all he does for our church, youth and community. He also leads our mission team every year to some disadvantage country doing medical, building and agricultural support. I showed the quilt to our minister and leaders of the church and it was decided to present it to him from the congregation in appreciation of all his devotion to God and humanity.


Bonnie Hunter's pattern that was published in Quiltmaker in 2009 and quilted beautifully by Viki Kirby. This was such a fun quilt to make and I love the colors.

It feels so good to get these 2 quilts in the done column. I still have one more to get bound, one still being quilted by Viki and then I will be free to start something new.

Oh they both are wonderful! I have a Tshirt quilt to make yet too, had the shirts for about a year - I'm still thinking on it!

Did Linda tell you about "your quilts" she has from Viki?

You have to wait until you get your last quilt done before you start a new one? Wow, that's a new concept for me!

Both of your newly completed quilts are stunning, Jan!

They are both great, I would be so afraid to try a t-shirt quilt. You did good!
