Dianna says that ever since Brandon was a baby, she's been planning on making him a quilt out of his shirts for when he went to college. Well now it's happening. Brandon leaves to be a Utah "Ute" in a few weeks.
Dianna doesn't sew or quilt, but she's not one to let that stand in her way. We'd meet up every once in a while at my house, and I'd show her the next step in the process. Dianna chose all of the fabrics for the borders of the shirts, and pieced those. I took on the task of sashing strips, cornerstones, borders and quilting. Sorry Dianna. I'm willing to let you play on my baby sewing machine, but you're not taking Esther Pearl for a test drive for a while. Since Brandon is a swimmer, we chose blue wave fabric for the borders, and quilted the quilt with a wave pattern
|This is my favorite shirt. The bear is holing a sign that reads "I am not a bear."|
