Erin's sister-in-law is a high school senior, active in everything. Part of that ultra-activity is a t-shirt for each occasion or event. Erin, along with assistance from her m-i-l, decided a quilt was called for. I am hoping that Erin will eventually write a blog about gifting this quilt, but for now I can share a few choice pictures from our recent day of stitching. We completed the entire quilt top in one long Saturday session; we began with shirts still uncut and finished with all but the last two borders (measuring issues).

Because the quilt will not be quilted in time for Christmas, we made two pillow cases out of the flannels and a couple of shirt parts. Here's how they look; and they are finished, so Christmas will be complete!
Happy Quilting, Friends!
