“Here’s to long life and a merry one. A quick death and an easy one. A pretty girl and an honest one. A cold beer — and another one!” — Irish Toast

It was great fun to create this quilt for one of the owners at the Brick Store Pub in Decatur, Georgia. If you have not ventured there, you are missing out. 🙂 His lovely wife surprised him with this t-shirt quilt made from many of the Pub’s fabulous shirts! She also chose very handsome fabrics to border and back it – must be time for a cold one 🙂

I think that I shall never see a poem lovely as a tree. Joyce Kilmer

In honor of National Quilting Day, I am sharing some pictures of a tree quilt!  This quilt was donated to the Gwinnett Ballet for a charity event. This quilt makes me happy – the colors are fresh and springlike. The designer of the quilt is Amanda Jean from  It was hard to let this quilt go, but nice to know the trees are helping keep the arts alive!
