Here is a t-shirt quilt that will be auctioned off for the benefit of a local Catholic elementary school.  My dear friends belong to this parish and put together a “Mommy & Me” basket with some of my Etsy items (aprons, headbands and bandana bands.)  I hope to get a picture to share.  I also made a quilt using t-shirts and sweatshirts and old uniforms.  They did not have a wide variety of shirts available, so I used some plain squares.  To jazz it up a bit, I used a celestial fabric for the sashing.  It captures the blue, gold and black of the quilt squares.  The quilt has a fuzzy fleece backing – perfect for a young girl or boy to snuggle under.

I have made all but one of my nieces and nephews a quilt when they graduated from high school.  It makes a nice memory gift, but also a practical item they can take to college.  I have made a number of custom quilts for friends and family and I’ve contemplated adding a custom quilt to my Etsy shop.  We’ll see.  Right now I enjoy making them because each one is unique and the recipients are usually thrilled to receive them.

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Here’s a giveaway for a free yard of fabric!l
