Graduation Gift T-Shirt quilt, by Angela Huffman

Patty’s T-shirt quilt for her graduating daughter is finished!

My Aunt stopped by while I was making this and she raved about the fabric used in the outside border. She said my cousin had just purchased a bag at a store made out of this exact material.

I really love the hot lime green cornerstones with the matching binding. It really brings the eye outward and spices the whole thing up.

I fell in love with the polka dot fabric used in the sashings. I kept craving ice cream while I was sewing with it. It reminds me of those Dippin’ Dots for some reason and that keeps ice cream on my brain.

My favorite shirt is the one in the far right hand bottom corner.  It reads, “There’s a lot of blood, sweat, and tears between dreams and success.”

Boy, isn’t THAT the truth!

One of the things that made this quilt fun was the care Patty took to get shirts from her daughter’s elementary and middle schools. There are even school uniform shirts in the quilt!
What a keepsake, eh?  And stylish for a teen’s taste too!
