Medallion Memory Quilt

This is the 3rd memory quilt made for my colleague’s family from his father’s shirts (mostly Tommy Bahama shirts).  One of his shirts had this lovely scene on the shirt’s back fabric which I wanted to use as the center of the quilt.  I then used the other shirts in a round-the-world pattern around the center medallion.  The shirt is machine pieced and quilted.  It measures approx 49.5 in X 59.5 in.

This two hats use yarn Universal Yarn Uptown Worsted Tapestry in Yule color scheme.The one on the left was made using Elf’s Hat by Tara Mercer.  There wasn’t quite enough of the skein for two elf hats so the second one is a simple basic hat.

Aviatrix and Kitamat Hats

I have started working on knitting hats for several of the grand-nieces/nephews and maybe some of the nieces/nephews too.  These two are for grand-nieces.  The one with the pink crocheted rose is the Aviatrix hat.  The pattern is  Aviatrix hat by Justine Turner.  The white yarn is Cascade Yarns 220 Superwash.  The pink yarn is left over Malabrigo Yarn Lace from the swirl jacket I knit a few years back. 

The pattern for the blue/white hat is Kitimat by Kayla Sparkes.  Both yarns are HiKoo by skacel Simplicity.
