The lucky winner of the T-Shirt Memory Quilt PDF Pattern Giveaway is:

Thank you all for your interest!  For one week only I will be selling the pattern on my Etsy shop for $5 to my current followers.  If you are interested, please contact me via email (maidenjane (at) gmail (dot) com).  I will set up a custom listing for you.

Meanwhile, I have finally been able to do something about my son’s T-shirt collection. 

I’ve converted some of it to this:

My first-born son is (I hope!) graduating high school soon and, after making so many quilts for nieces and nephews, finally had the opportunity to create a memory quilt for one of my children.  For this musical son I selected a sashing fabric with a subtle treble clef pattern from Joanns. 

You would hardly know that I wrote the pattern for this quilt.  I, of course, don’t need that pattern, and proceeded to make numerous mistakes….I had squares upside-down, entire columns in the wrong place…

Thankfully, as with most of my creative life, I was able to rip out and fix my mistakes, take a deep breath and move on.
