Freeform T-shirt memory quilt using shirts received for running marathons 63” x 87” Custom designed shirt and photo memory quilt for a man who passed away when his grandkids were just infants.  I cut out the pockets of the shirts and stitched them on so Grandma could hide treats for the grandkids to find in Pop-Pop’s pockets when they came to visit. 56” x 65” Freeform rag style T-shirt memory quilt made for a young child to remember her father who passed away.  I made the quilt rag style because it was softer for the little girl to wrap up in.  Made a coordinating quilt for her brother.  63” x 72” Freeform T-shirt and photo memory quilt -- sports.  There were too many shirts in this project and breaking them up into “Sports” and “Family” quilts rather than one large quilt made it much easier to coordinate colors.  60” x 80”
