New Hawaiian Themed Wine Glass Coasters and Bookmarks


We recently took a trip to Hawaii and had a great time. Of course I couldn't come home without some new fabric. I used some of that fabric to make some bookmarks...


...and some wine glass coasters. I'll have them at Art on the Lawn this Saturday, Aug. 12, 2017. After the show I'll take them to Village Artisans. And you can also get them from my Etsy shop.

20 T-Shirt Quilts!

I've been organizing my files and discovered I've made 20 t-shirt quilts! Here are the fronts and backs of them. (I'll start #21 next month). As always, you can click on any of the photos to see them larger.)










(For this one the backing was provided, it was an unfinished quilt top)






Double-sided t-shirt quilts:

While most of the others had some t-shirts on the back, these were designed to be two-sided, with the same-sized shirt matching up on the other side.
