June 13, 2019 – Graduation Tribute
This t-shirt quilt was artfully pieced by the customer using shirts, sweatshirts, pants and other items from the recipient’s elementary through high school days. There were so many items to include that the backing (third picture) was actually a mini quilt surrounded by a blue border. In order not to detract from the quilt and memories, a cool gray thread was used with a meandering stitch.
