Blogger's Quilt Festival - 2011

I decided to join in with the Blogger's Quilt Festival.  You can read about it on Amy's Creative Side.

The quilt I decided to share is the first quilt I ever entered in a show (and maybe my 2nd or 3rd quilt ever).  It is the T-shirt quilt I made for Mr. Genius.  He is a firefighter, so I used some of our fire department shirts to make it.

It would just be easier to show you than to try to tell you any more...You can click on the pictures to get more detail.

A really bad picture, but the only one with me in it.  :)

The quilting is done in red and blue thread.  There are red flames stitched into the yellow squares and then I squiggled blue everywhere else for water.

Mr. Genius informed me that although I "measured" the quilt for size using my self, I am short and he, well, isn't.  He has requested another version of the same quilt (meaning fire t-shirts) that is large enough for him and he will give me back the one that is apparently "Mary" sized.
