……this baby has been a long time coming. I have been saving these t-shirts for quite some time – promising a quilt from them for years. I would sound smart if I said I wanted to be sure to cover all her school years but that would be – well hog wash! In reality, I just never got ’round to it! Regardless, it is done!
It is two sided so that she can have a “pretty” side for her dorm, if she so desires, or a memory side if she is feeling a bit nostalgic. This this is super long as the beds in a dorm are what is referred to as Twin XL. When I was taking pictures of it, I had Kaylah hold it (while ducking behind it) from the deck while I stood in the driveway.
Here is the T-Shirt side…the shirts date all the way back to 2nd grade so about 10 years.
The Dorm Side was an interpretation of a picture Kaylah found on Pinterest.
The quilting was a simple straight line following the chevron pattern. I used a gray, white and pink on the dorm side but a white in the bobbin by the suggestion of the brilliant Michelle! Here are a couple of upclose of the quilting:
Finally I thought it would be fun to include some bloopers of Kaylah holding the quilt:
I don’t normally do this but I think it is high time I start, so I have stolen the layout from Cindy….here’s the deets:
