Chalk up one more quilting finish for 2016!
I finished hand-stitching the binding and label on this quilt earlier this week. It's a t-shirt quilt commissioned by my good friend for her daughter and son-in-law. The t-shirts represent memories of their school days and courtship at the University of Mississippi, better known as Ole Miss.
The quilt's recipient requested all the t-shirts be the same size, and she selected the sashing fabric (Kaffe Fassett's Paperweight in cobalt blue). BTW, "Hotty Toddy" refers to a famous cheer at Ole Miss, not a warm alcoholic beverage!
I made a small label, commemorating the wedding - which followed graduation (names covered for their privacy). It's hard to believe they've been married almost 20 years - it seems like the wedding was only yesterday! I saw their oldest daughter two weeks ago - she'll be a college freshman this coming fall. Her parents aren't too happy - she's going to Louisiana State University, not Ole Miss!
