I have been working on some art quilts to enter in SAQA exhibits.  (Can't post those, so I'll show other projects that I've been involved in recently) First is a Tshirt quilt that I am making for a former high school student of mine.
She saved shirts that she got at concerts.  I think it is coming along nicely!!!!  It will have large borders, as it is for a queen sized bed.  The borders will be various black and white prints, with slivers of colors here and there. 

I'm also making some crazy pieced blocks for a young woman who has been diagnosed with breast cancer and is having a rough time.  Some friends and I will make two quilts - one to raffle, and one for a comfort quilt.  The raffle one will be pinks and creams, and the comfort one will be hot pinks and blacks - her favorite colors. 
I am linking up with Nina Marie's Creative blog.  Check out what other quilt artists are up to there.

The day after I last posted, my dear mama passed away in her sleep. I have made several quilts about my mom and am working on one now, but I wanted to post some other memorial quilts I have made for customer/friends. This one was made using my friend's grandmother's clothing and a sweet photo of her.
This one was made using many linens that were gifted from a great grandmother over the years. The center is an embroidery that the great grandmother made.

Linking to NinaMarie's blog with other art quilters and their work.
