T Shirt Memory Quilt completed!

Today #1 son and I drove upstate to deliver the T shirt quilt I finished for my parents, celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary. Today is actually their 61st anniversary! Congratulations Mom and Dad!! So yes, I did get it done with one day to spare! Here’s a pic of the happy couple with their new keepsake!

Next quilting project: T shirt quilt for high school graduating daughter… Question is… should I start it now before I begin her graduation dress, an on trend white (must be white) cotton eyelet, retro 40’s Mad Men-esque style and mine (and the 16 makeup bags for her closest friends) or after?!
Dear sewing and quilting gods, be with me!!

    Fabulous as always. Finish the dresses first & the makeup bags. Then the quilt. If anything is late. The quit T doesn’t need till school begins
