NTT- Memory Quilts

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, my friends!  Since last week, I've been knee-deep in men's shirts.  My friend lost her father-in-law, and these shirts will be special keepsakes for her husband, sons, and her mother-in-law.  

If you look closely, you can see that I've already finished two quilt tops this week (I've been cutting and sewing like crazy).  One finished top is on the wall, and one is folded.  I've also cut out all the pieces for the two other quilts.  There were so many shirts, I will even have plenty for the backs, and those strips are ready to go as well.  When I'm working on several quilts from a set of clothing, I always process the shirts into useable fabric and get everything cut out at once.  Somehow tackling several quilts at once seems less daunting that way.  Memory quilts are so labor-intensive and they aren't always the most fun to work on because shirting fabric is tricky to piece, but the fact that they will be truly cherished makes them worth it!

Last week's party had lots of great links!  This simple, but striking quilt is from Anne-Marie at Stories From the Sewing Room-

This fun little black and green quilt is from Gretchen's Little Corner-

The ombre effect in this one by Sew Preeti Quilts is so awesome!

And finally, Sue Dario Quilting shared this amazing finish.  Look at all of that amazing quilting detail!
