A Special Quilt

A little project I have been working on. This bow tie quilt is made from a few of my dad's favorite plaid shirts. I took a bunch of his shirts and have had them stashed away for a while now. It has always been my intention to make pillows or quilts out of them. So when my daughter found out she was pregnant, I knew the baby would be the first one to get a quilt.

The baby shower/cookout was this past Saturday, so I was under the gun to get this finished. I presented it to her when the family arrived. Worried there might be tears, I figured it was better to do it before everyone got here. I will post more about the "mustache bash" later. I'm off to work now!


  1. What a beautiful quilt and so lovely to have a family link in it. Great idea and I'm sure it was well received:)

  2. What a great idea for a shower gift! I'm sure your daughter will treasure it for a long time. You did a great job on it!
