    Graduation Quilts - always fun

    Tee-Shirt and photo quilts are such fun to make. It is a wonderful challenge to capture a person's likes and life passions. I can tell how good a job i have done capturing the person by how many tears and hugs happen when they see the quilt for the first time. The custom quilts are my favorites to make.

    I love your use of the zebra fabric with the t-shirts, what fun. Both quilts are great.

    Forgot to put the back on

    Here is the back of the Zebra quilt. Had lots of t-shirts and not so much zebra fabric so worked it out.

    Wow love the way the pictures look like they floated out of the frames! Fantastic, thanks for sharing.

    I loved seeing your t-shirt quilts as I am working on one now. This is my first one. I told my grand daughter to save her shirts through high school and we would work on it when she gratuates. She came over on Memorial Day with a big basket of shirts.
