Finish It Up Friday

Today I wanted to show you the quilts I made for my sweet little Lincoln. I made this first one long before he was born in anticipation that Liam would have a little brother or sister at some point. This one was made from shirts worn by his daddy, papa, and great grandpa.

And here is the quilt I made last week to match the king sized quilt I made for his momma and daddy. 

       I used a very soft minky type of fabric on the back. I didn’t have any trouble at all long arming this but my Bernina does not like this fabric at all! I ended up finishing the binding on my vintage Singer 301.

Here is little tiny guy with big brother and Papa. 


Big brother thoroughly inspected the quilt and decided it should belong to him! 

  

  

  

  

  

 Guess I know what I will be working on as soon as I get home! Our time here is flying by all too fast. Loving spending time with my kids and babies. Thank you for all the lovely bcomments this week. Remember that my giveaway is open until next Tuesday. See last Tuesday’s post for details.

Linking up wit Crazy Mom Quilts, Richard and Tanya Quilts, Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

    I kind of think your husband is really enjoying his time there with the little ones.
    Love big brother’s curly hair!

  5. I have a little Lincoln, too!!!!!! Those half rectangle triangles are absolutely gorgeous. I haven’t made anything from shirts yet, but I really want to. I think they make such special quilts.

  6. Carie says:

    Oh it looks lovely, and how sweet to have so many memories tucked up in it through their shirts!

  7. Beautiful quilts, and isn’t it good to know you have a ready and waiting home for a new one! We do appreciate our work being appreciated, don’t we?

    Beautiful! What a wonderful idea to use the shirts

    I think Big Brother has come to realize that quilts are fabulous things and that one can never have too many. Nice to have some convenient “excuses” to make quilts, isn’t it? I always refer to my daughter and her family as my excuses to make quilts. ha!
