Graduation T-Shirt Quilt

 A co-worker asked me to make this T-shirt quilt for her son who is graduating from high school this May.  I enjoyed working with her on a design using many of her son's favorite shirts. It measures 64" by 91". My helper had to stand on the coffee table so I could take this picture!

She chose the music note fabric as an accent, and it looks fabulous for the binding! The back is solid royal blue dots from JoAnn.

My last two quilts have been gifts, so next up is a project for me!

A Pinwheel Quilt for Kade

I made this Pinwheel Quilt for two friends of mine who just had their first baby.

The nursery colors are green and brown, so I tried to stay with that theme without making it scream "BABY".  The jungle animal backing is fun :)  I chose straight-line quilting in a diagonal pattern which was quick and easy on this small quilt!

My favorite part of the quilt is the binding. This was my first time to use a striped binding. I'm in love. It's so cute! 

I rarely make quilts to give away, so I hope baby Kade will enjoy it for many years!
