Graduation Quilt

This is a T-shirt quilt I just finished for one of our attorneys here at the office. I did one for her son last year, and this one's for her daughter for HS graduation. We went fabric shopping and she picked this stripe.
She combined childhood quilts along with some from high school.
I love doing T-shirt quilts. Each one is so different because each group of shirts varies so much.
Gulf Breeze is a little town across the bay from Pensacola.
Blue is her favorite color and she chose this Moda Marbles fabric for the back. She hasn't seen it yet, hope she likes it.

Until next time, make something beautiful.
