Becky’s T-shirt Quilt

Becky’s Quilt

Becky’s Quilt is complete.  As many of you know, when each member of our family graduates from high school, I create a t-shirt quilt for them.  I learn a lot about my neices and nephews.  I find out what activities they enjoyed, sports, musicals, first job, summer camp fun, and lots more.  No two quilts come out the same.  Becky loves pink.  I collaged the t-shirts with back and white fabrics with a spot of bright pink here and there.  Then I made a large border onthe top to cover the pillow area of the bed.  The other three borders have the same fabric, but much narrower.  I meandered around the t-shirts in the center and sstippled in the black section of the border.  The backing is puzzle-pieced with the left overs.  The overall size is approximately 78″ x 95″.
