the club

The t-shirt quilt has become a family tradition. A life size scrapbook of saved t-shirts sewn together into a cuddly security blanket for leaving the nest.

Sarah saw her t-shirt quilt at different stages, helped with the layout. I started in January 2011 and went as far as I could, but had to hold spots for Senior tees.

Completed in March 2012, but Sarah didn’t see the finished project until graduation.

She opened it up and wrapped it around her and said, "Yay I'm part of the club now! This is the best graduation present I got!"
