Life IS Good

Life is Good t shirts were a staple in my wardrobe.  They were a favorite find while traveling.  The perfect gift for my family to give.  So colorful and optimistic.  When it was time to retire them from my closet, I could not part with them, sew…

Decision made, a sewed a few and put them in a cute pizza box and put them on my to finish list for three years.  Yikes.Life is Good 8

This winter I began in earnest to get this quilt finished!  Our quilt retreat in January helped.

Finally it was time to arrange the blocks and sew them up.  And I began dreaming of Jake’s face for the quilting design.  This top hung in my basement for several months as I navigated copyright infringement and designer requests.  I am happy to say the time spent was worth it to do it right!Life is Good (5)

This is a favorite quilt and will be for a long time.  Sew many memories in these happy shirts.
