Crazy Shortcut Quilt Stories!

My friend Sara, in Abu Dhabi, made a childs tee shirts quilt. Sara has made so many CSQ quilts that I think she can make them in her sleep!! Here’s the story on her newest quilt:

My sister was visiting and brought with her her children old tee shirts
and asked me to put it in a quilt. This is my very 1st tee shirt quilt and
I choose to use your method. It went really fast and is so cute.

I have recently met with a few very nice women in our community who also love to sew and quilt..We started a sewing/quilting night in one of the ladies’ home…We have a blast I bought your book and made two quilts…then other ladies made quilts also..and one of them bought your book too..
With this little group I don’t feel so alone here and they are a great bunch of ladies..Sometimes we sit and chat and other times is progess ..we just love to show off our work and we love to see each others work..and it’s great to bounce ideas off each other and well it’s just great fun..
My daughter even made herself a quilt and she barely ever sewed before..Thank you it certainly has brought us together..Here are the pictures of the quilts I did..
One I gave to a friend cause it really matched the colors of her living room, the other is pink with pink ribbon for the cure a friend was diagnosed with breast cancer and I wanted it to comfort her..She is far away from me..So she can cuddle up in the quilt and think of me..

Oh, I just love stories like these!! I receive emails regularly from quilters, not just about our book, but about all kinds of quilting, and the best ones are the emails that tell me a story of connection, reaching out, teaching and sharing of ideas!! What a huge smile they give me. Sara and Louise just made my day, week and month with their stories ๐Ÿ™‚
