Taryn's Quilt

Our beautiful and smart niece Taryn graduated from high school this weekend. She was very active in sports all through school and is attending college with several scholarships, including one for volleyball. It was a given that she would want a quilt made from her school shirts.

To be completely honest, tshirt quilts are pretty far down on the list of things I enjoy making, but that's not something you say no to. Her school colors are black and red, but she requested that I use lime green for the accents. I had my doubts but it turned out really good. I choose to piece the back with a variety of fabrics, and I could not resist adding some hexies.  The gray swirly ones came from Lauren's quilt, for a little special connection.

I'm linking up with Trish's Inspiration Monday (Yes, I know it's Tuesday) so please go over and check out what everyone else is inspired to do.


  1. I love it! Congratulations to Taryn!

  2. What a wonderful gift! She will treasure this always.

  3. I really love how this came out! Especially the backing with all of the different pieces. Until recently I just used one giant piece of fabric (sewn together), but I love the variety on the back. Plus hexies. :)

  4. Congratulations, you did a great job, very clever.

  5. That is so special! I love it! I'm loving reading about all the 'inspiration' that other bloggers have. I have no inspiration for creativity. Well, I did like to do our book displays at the library. That might be creative. Anyway, what a good aunt and congrats to your niece!

  6. What a great auntie you are! Love, love it!

  7. That's a great gift and she'll have it for a lifetime. Great work!
