Hint of another quilt in the works
I am making a big wall hanging/or lap quilt for Abby, the daughter of our friend, Jim, who died this past July. Jim loved wearing Hawaiian shirts. When we were there for his memorial service I took home a pile of these shirts, cut them up and am using them to frame photos of him and his family. He was also a fly fisherman. Therefore, lots of fish on this quilt too, also cut from the shirts. This is the center square made up of several different shirt pieces and is surrounded by eight other like framed 5" X 7" photos. These pieces are top sewn onto a piece of sandwiched black broadcloth.
