The last two weeks have been spent working on a memory quilt for our niece's high school graduation. The first plan was a t-shirt quilt, but bless her heart....my niece could not let go of her t-shirt collection quite yet. So Aunt Sheri had to come up with Plan B.
This is the back.....I used my t-shirt from the state BB tournament as a big chuck of the backing....just added some additional fabric to make it large enough. I included a photo type label on the back, a yellow pocket that I included some newspaper clippings from some of the games and a fabric sleeve across the top to hang it.
I wanted to divide the body of the quilt from the border, so added some rick-rack just to define the star points a bit and not have them all run into the border. The stars and photos I stitched in the ditch with clear monofiliment thread and the outside borders I stitched an easy free motion loop design.
I have done several of these photo type projects and I have loved everyone of them that I have done. I will have to post some of the other pictures another day for some inspiration.
