Since today is my brother’s birthday, it seem only fitting that I showcase and document a quilt I made specifically for him.
When I saw a listing for Mary Mashuta’s Tourist Shirt class in the Cotton Patch schedule, I knew immediately that I would make this quilt for brother Dave. I had made Hawaiian shirts for him for a while, and Mary’s original design looked just like those shirts. (FYI: Mary’s shirt pattern is featured in her book Stripes in Quilts.) In addition, I still had some of the leftover scraps, of course. How cool would it be, I thought, to make a shirt quilt out of some of his shirt fabrics. Turns out, it was kinda cool, but it was gifted before I got professional photos of it, so these photos are those taken when the quilt was displayed at the EBHQ Voices in Cloth 2002 quilt show.
Happy Birthday, Davey!!
