T-Shirt Memory Quilt

Memories are not always tucked in between the pages of a book. Today they are pressed in between the 20 squares finished on the t-shirt quilt. I am designing a t-shirt quilt for my daughter for her high school graduation. Amazingly enough the thoughts and good memories that fit into each 16 x 16 inch blocks were the t-shirts worn by my daughter as she participated in soccer at age 6, played volleyball in middle school, played on the traveling teams for soccer or on her HS teams.

Family Is SEW Important

You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them. ~Desmond Tutu

How true these words and how wonderful. I watched my husband and his 9 siblings laugh, smile, and enjoy being together as a family this weekend. They range in age from 47 to 65 and haven’t been together as a family unit in three years.
