One From Pa

The special quilt that I have been working on has been gifted to its new owner, so it's safe to show it to everyone now.  This is another quilt made from my father's shirts.  (It's amazing how much fabric one gets from 24 shirts!)  I made this quilt for my niece who just graduated from college.  Lots of tears went into the making and receiving of this quilt, but it was well worth it...I know it will be treasured for always!

It turned out beautifully too. I can imagine the tears that flowed in making it. Is that a D9P pattern? It is so attractive.

One of the prettiest plaid quilts that I have ever seen. It is extra special to have it made of fond memories. You did a great job.
