The quilt pictured above was Taylor’s parents’ gift to her as she graduated and headed to college. I had so much fun making this quilt because of the beautiful array of t-shirts I had to chose from. The diamond configuration worked really well, as most of the logos weren’t too big and the colors made the quilt beautiful, cheerful and joyous. Taylor was a young lady who was active in many activities, from helping out at the zoo to dance class to sports.
I really liked the colorful border, which helped me use up the extra pieces. The quilting pattern was a favorite – a swirling pattern to balance the angular shape of the diamonds. Because many of the t-shirts were from Taylor’s younger years, I had to “cut and paste” to make the logo fit the template often, but fortunately it doesn’t detract.
Below is a picture of Taylor displaying her quilt, which was a surprise gift:
