... and Toby
for a photo shoot for the Pets on Quilts Show.
I made this raggie denim shirt quilt 10 years ago when I first started long arm quilting. Many of you have seen it, because I have shared it here.
I cut up denim shirts, plaid cotton shirts, flannel scraps, and denim dresses to create this quilt.
I backed my quilt with flannel fabric and used a poly batting to make it a little lighter than if I had used a cotton batting.
I was just learning to free style quilt. I chose a variegated thread with blends of blues. I really had fun practicing loops and whimsical flowers.
In the beginning, I had a hard time hitting the center points of the flowers, thus resulting in the uneven flowers that still look great today - 10 years later.
I did not snip this quilt to fray. I let it fray naturally.
It is my favorite quilt of all the quilts I have ever made. It is soft and warm, yet light weight, because of the poly batting and use of the denim shirts.
In the winter, I cuddle up as I am blogging. Sometimes I share it with Gabby and Toby. They love it too!

I also enjoy my new grand baby and I will be sharing some baby photos soon. Remember, I made four quilts for him and tons of baby burp cloths. I took photos of them being put to good use. We had a wonderful trip to the Netherlands and I am finally recovering from the jet lag! I spent a lot of time in the rocking chair just holding the baby.
