the-cousin-s-ccollection
Name of Maker: Lettie Bowman and Sheri Nemerson

Mary Kerr's show inspired me to post the bags I made from The Cousin's Collection.  I had16 blocks that I inherited from my grandmother and 16 female cousins.  I had a "The Cousin's Collection" rubber stamp made and used it to mark the muslin lining.  I covered the " not always great" workmanship with yoyo's and thought of the stains as a dexign element.  The blocks are all pockets that are quilted with decorative stitches. Each bag is different and they are embellished with yoyo's, buttons, chenille, machine and hand applique, and embroidery.  Most of the fabrics came from my stach, so it was a great project to use up left over fabric.  I have kept those blocks for 40 years and am delighted to have them out the door!

Cheerleader-t-shirt-quilt
Name of Maker: NancyinSTL

Made for a cheerleader graduating from high school.  This was my first T-shirt quilt, which includes a cheerleader uniform (partially set-in), sweatshirts, detachable hair bows (pinned on using eyelets) and tees.  I used woven fusible interfacing and cotton pieced quilt blocks as fillers.  Each block was custom quilted on my domestic sewing machine.  Backing fabric by Tula Pink.
