Sewing Memory Quilts and NTT

Please forgive the delay in NTT this week.  My internet was down yesterday and has been spotty this morning.  This week, other than being snowed in, I've finished cutting up my grandfather's shirts, as well as the background fabric for all three quilts.  We're actually getting more freezing rain today (ugh), so I've started piecing the tops between cooking, watching movies, and working on a puzzle with my husband while we're both home all day.  

The pattern I've chosen for these three quilts is one I've made a couple of times before.  It's a simple pattern, but it's my favorite to use for shirts.  It allows the use of lots of shirts, and it shows them off well.  These quilts will feature 30 different shirts, so it was a natural choice.

I've also been finalizing several upcoming trips for this spring.  I'll be visiting the Charlotte Quilters' Guild in North Carolina this March, the Bartlesville, OK Quilt Guild in April (near Tulsa), and finally, I'm heading to the Bloomington Quilters Guild in Indiana in May!

I LOVE traveling to visit guilds, and I only have two available months left in 2024- August and September.  I would love to visit YOU during one of those months!  And of course, I'm already booking 2025 as well.  Please send me an email and we can get something on the calendar, or pass my information along to your guild's programming chair.

Okay friends, before we party, let's check out some of the amazing projects shared last week.  This lovely quilt is from Jan at The Colorful Fabriholic-

  1. bad weather sure does interfere with internet doesn't it. My photo went in upside down - don't know if you can change it on your end, I couldn't sorry

  2. EEEE! OMG! You are coming to my guild! Lots of gorgeous quilts shared this week too. But really, I'm so excited our program chairs took my suggestion!

  3. I hope that your power stays on and that the freezing rain doesn't cause too many problems for you locally. Sounds and looks like you have a great plan for staying inside and out of that nasty weather!

  4. I hope your weather soon returns to normal! What sweet memories will be stitched up in those quilts with his shirts ❤

  5. I would love to know which pattern you use for those shirt memory quilts. I have several of my father-in-law's shirts that I need to make quilts with.

  6. Sure sorry the weather is playing havoc with Northerners! If it makes you feel any better, it was 32F this morning in Central Florida... and we haven't turned on our furnace! That's because it's supposed to reach 80F on Wednesday. Jiminy. I admire all the work you're going to, using your grandfather's shirts to make quilts for your family. They will sure be special.
