Memory Quilts and!!!! Finished ( or not) Friday!!!

I have a big project that FINALLY got Finished!!! and I am so Happy!!

I had a client who's husband passed away. He was a Dairy Man and she saved a bunch of his work shirts for just simple quilts for his kids.... He had 4! 

So I dug into the shirts and started cutting squares. Surprisingly - that took a LONG time!!! but I got the tops together and since he was a pilot, I quilted planes on each quilt. and then... the binding....

but now!! they are all done, and ready for her to have them!!!!

Here they are!! I used pockets and some button cuffs and I think they are really fun quilt.

And the Airplanes. Aren't those fun?

Now that I have that cleaned up and off the table....And My Mystery Quilt is ready to quilt  - I know you are only on Clue 2 - but!! You will love it!!!   I am ready to get back to my Pile Project!!!!

Love the simplicity of the work shirt quilts! Cute idea to quilt airplanes on them. What a treasure for those kids! I’m sure they will be used and loved!
And yes! I do know it’s the last day of September! It’s our son’s birthday!

Oh my goodness, a dairy man and a pilot. Such a huge loss for his family and so much warmth and comfort in your quilts for them. You are a kind soul. Have an awesome weekend.

Your quilts for the dairy man's family are a wonderful labor of love. The airplanes are adorable, and I always love pockets on a quilt made from shirts. Congrats on a big project finished!

Oh my goodness, what special quilts for his children. The quilts look soft and cuddly, and the airplanes are the perfect choice for the quilting.

What a lovely thing for you to do for your friend and such a good idea -- the four children will be so happy to have this memory of their dad.
