A friend of mine has a son graduating from high school this year. She wants to give him a T-shirt quilt as a graduation present. I tried to convince her that she could do it with a little help, but she isn't crafty at all. Instead she asked me if I could please make it for her. What could I say? I'm about 8 hours in so far -- stabilizing, cutting and laying out the shirts. I cut them as rectangles this time and I am really liking the way it works. Each shirt is cut at 14 by 18 which seems to work well for maximizing pattern placement. Some of the shirts were a bit smaller, so I used the sleeves and pocket emblems to fill those out. I'm waiting on fabric decisions next. She wants masculine blues and greens.
Take a look at how big our neighborhood Sandhill Crane is getting. He is almost as big as Mom now. There is another family down closer to the main road with a tiny new chick. It is so much fun watching them grow up each spring.
