West Houston Quilters Guild Show 2017

The West Houston Quilters Guild had their biennial Quilt Show last weekend.  I took some pictures and will share them with you in several posts.  I obtained permission from several ladies to post their name with their quilt.  I do not use names unless I ask first, so most quilts are for your viewing pleasure without names.

Her quilt won First Place in applique

Beautifully quilted by Mary Jo Yackley.

Blood Donation T-Shirt Rag Quilt


I decided to use my Blood Donation T-Shirt Collection to make a rag quilt.  I need to make four T-Shirt Quilts from a collection of expensive shirts that my Husband brings from his travels.  So, I plan to get comfortable cutting up my free t-shirts first.  This quilt will be 56" x 70" and I want to quilt it myself so I will make it rag style.



I cut each shirt into a 15-inch square.


This is my favorite.






Here are the 25 t-shirts all cut into squares.


I cut the usable backs and plain white t-shirts to use as the back of the quilt.



These are 15" flannel squares to use as batting.

I will keep you updated on my progress.
