Another t-shirt quilt for Christmas...

Here's a pic of another t-shirt quilt that I did for a customer.  It's actually for her daughter and made from her t-shirts she accumulated at college (Ouachita Baptist University, hence, the purple).  The customer that I did this for is actually someone I graduated high school with, so we go back a ways!  She really liked it when she picked it up, which always makes me happy.  :)

Currently on the longarm...

Here's a pic of my current project.  I've been working on it for a little over a year now, and am FINALLY to the quilting stage.  Right now I am doing the background quilting, which is a very close "leafy" type of quilting, so is taking a long time.  But it looks nice and feels really good to the touch, a lot of texture.  I'm calling this one "Blackbirds In My Winter Garden", since there are blackbirds in the border around the edge of the quilt.  This quilt has an "Olde World" feel to me, I really like the subject and colors of it.  I'm hoping to have it finished sometime next week and will post a final pic of it then.
