Pretty in Pink T-Shirt Quilt

Here's a young friend's t-shirt quilt. Since her drill team was named Red Jackets, red was the obvious choice for the sashing or border. Wrong. She wanted pink only. All that pink needed some separation so I added a narrow inner border. But even that black fabric has small pink dots on it.

In addition to t-shirts, this quilt has part of her team jacket, a pocket from band practice shorts, the logo from a ball cap and the poodle from a dance costume. Anything washable can be included.

Adorable poodle on the leash! Very nicely done altogether. Sometimes I find these a bit challenging but it's just a puzzle that works itself out. :-) Well done!

Thank you. I especially enjoyed this quilt because she had so many varied interests and brought lots of different memorabilia. I think it makes a great portable scrapbook.
