Peter's Memorial Tee Shirt Quilt

This is a quilt I made for my friend Debbie after her son passed away at the young age of 40 last year.

She gave me all his favorite shirt and asked me to make a quilt for her and Peter's sister, Mackenzie. 

This was my first FMQ project.  I learned the designs on Leah's website, drew them, tested them on a muslin square, then FMQ'd each tee shirt block.  Each of the 36 blocks uses a different design from the Free Motion QuiltThis was a very fun and rewarding project. I then assembled them using QAYG and Marguerita's McManus Crazy Short Cut Quilts method.

The link to the Flickr set should show more detailed photos of  the FMQ on all 36 blocks and my assembly process.

The black thread on black fabric is hard to see while quilting as well.Peace, with variegated Pebbles and Flame Rays. This one turned out pretty wild!  What can I sayIreland, with Shamrock Chain.
