Caroline’s Favorite T-Shirts

This quilt was so much fun to make!  I just loved it!  This was a high school graduation quilt for a beautiful young lady.  She saved all her favorite t-shirts and ended up with a very special quilt to take to college.  Just take a look at this quilt:

Good luck at college, Caroline!

Hunter’s Baseball Jersey Quilt

I had the pleasure of creating this wonderful quilt made from baseball jerseys and t-shirts.  Hunter has been playing baseball all the way through high school – thankfully his parents kept all those t-shirts and jerseys!  As you can see in the pictures below, I was able to use the jerseys – with the button down fronts.  I sewed the shirt together then treated it as a t-shirt.  This quilt is also special because a friend of mine, Shelley, embroidered three of Hunter’s motivational quotes, and I was able to include them in the quilt.  Also, there are four pictures of Hunter playing ball.  All in all, this is a wonderful quilt – and I know he’ll enjoy it as he plays baseball in college.

And, from the jerseys – one back and one front – I also made him a matching pillow.
