    I made this quilt after my daughter injured her hip, and could not run any more marathons, so she asked me to make her a quilt with all of her T-shirts. quilting by hand by My mother and I.

    What an awesome quilt! You all did a wonderful job and I know your daughter will really treasure it. So sorry about her injury. Hopefully she can do some other type of long distance sport.

    That is an exceptional T Shirt quilt. The way you framed the blocks just makes it pop.

    That's the most attractive t-shirt quilt I've seen!!! Well done!

    I have to say though, being a runner myself, it breaks my heart a little that she can't run anymore. Will she be able to do shorter distances?

    What a wonderful memory quilt for your DD.
    She should be very proud of her accomplishments.
    I hope she finds something else (sport wise) that she can enjoy.

    Love the way you framed the shirts. And I really admire anyone who hand quilts.

    She plays tennis now, They pinned her hip , and then after it healed they had to go in and remove the pin. Now she is pretty active. She loves her tennis.
