Cynthia has completed her latest quilt. It’s called “Jay’s Shirts Travel The World.”

During the course of creating my many custom shirts, Cynthia has ended up with a lot of unusual scraps of fabric. One of her goals is to make a quilt for each room and she created this one to hang in the laundry room. Each panel represents one of the shirts she has made for me placed in a situation that is in some kind of contast to the theme of the shirt.

There are only 12 shirts represented, but my collection is well over 30 at this point.

Here are some additional detail shots to show the stitching and the buttons that were added to each panel

Photographing this quilt was a great opportunity to use the new flash unit.

    Nice quilt! That’s an art that seems almost lost. Still have some from my grandmother and my wife’s grandmother.

    OMG, the detail is so amazing! This quilt represents so much creativity, skill & beauty that in turn is a perfect way to describe Cynthia!

    And the Van Gogh styled shirt with the sleeve cut-off – my favorite panel!

    Cynthia is seriously a goddess. Is there anything that woman can’t do?
