T-shirts for Shauri
We had many different sizes of shirts to work with but they all had to finish at 15" because of the sushi restaurant shirt. Got to have the city where it's from, that's where her daughter went to college. Shauri went off to get some extra fabric to add to build up the blocks as needed, also sashing strips and backing fabric. We did a sample layout, but she told me "I trust you." to make it work. After I had all the shirts built out to size, I sent her a photo from my phone, but she couldn't really see it well because of the angle. I use my guest room bed as my "design wall", and can't suspend myself from the ceiling to get a good shot of the quilts when they are on the bed. Thankfully, Shauri was able to come and preview the quilt top and gave her approval for my layout. Great because I'm excited to get this going further for her.
So now it is finished and ready for her to pick up, wrap and place under the tree. Since her daughter gave her the shirts, it's not really a surprise, but I still think that she'll be surprised and pleased to have those memories to wrap up in.
