I was "forced" to play with Lucey

This is the quilt I made for my first granddaughter's graduation from the book Bella Bella quilts.  It is my version of NON-paper pieced paper piecing.  My mind just doesn't work backwards, so I break the pattern down into units and then connect them into the wedge segments.  I had my husband cut out plexi template rulers to trim the units.  I started this after Easter and it went together pretty quickly.  SID the borders and the outside of the Xs.  Feathers in the upper purple/teal sections and loops in the bottom ones.  The star is from a shirt from each grandpa, the dark from the other grandpa who has been gone a couple years now, the light from one swiped from my husband.  The label is inserted into the western snap pocket from the dark shirt with a ribbon and kite from hubby's shirt.

Gorgeous quilt. Would not have guessed you used shirts. What a wonderful way to add sentiment to a quilt.

A good friend will come and bail you out of jail, but a best friend will be sitting next to you saying, 'Dang, that was fun'!

Your piecing and quilting look wonderful.  I like all the motion in the center.  Great job.

What a fantastic job you did with incorporating the shirts in this beautiful quilt.  I'm sure it will be passed on through the years for many hugs of memories starting with your granddaughter.
