I just adore this T Shirt Quilt. I’ve called these “Daddy Quilts” because I think they are a fantastic way to honor dad during this exciting time.

I’m not sure if these are all of “dad’s” shirts, but I’m guessing they might be based on the shirts…..

My lovely customer is giving this to her son in anticipation of his first son! She said the baby’s room has a vintage feel so she selected this gingham check which adds just the right old-fashioned, homey feel.

Add a fabulous navy, minky dot backing and you have a modern baby blanket!

You’ll be seeing some of these baby blankets because it is the season of baby showers. Think creatively about the types of fabrics that you want. I spend a lot of time working with my customers to find what they envision.
