Beautiful quilts. Finishing them for your mother's last years, what a beautiful service you've done for her. And that makes the quilts even more beautiful.

Bring them when you come visit  :).  I’ll be putting together T-shirt quilts by then.  (That’s the hope, anyway.)

Please remember when answering this question that I am a) a man, and b) British.

Are these quilted T-shirts, or quilts made from old T-shirts?
Don't ask me, I only live here.

Quilts made from old T-shirts.  I’ve saved T-shirts that meant something to CrowSon through the years, and hope to have them in at least one or two quilts for a graduation present in April.

After that, the goal is to take all my father’s Harley-Davidson (no comment, Roper! ;D) T-shirts and do the same.  I may have enough to make lap-sized one for each grandchild.

Truly, a year for quilt-making.

Oh if only.  Volume and weight are not on my side with restrictions....I do need to figure out what handwork to bring.
but maybe I can vacuum pack the sheep quilt to finish big stitching. if Boy's sweater is finished....

Although BYU will not have a graduation ceremony this April, CrowSon still needs a graduation present.  Here’s the quilt top, finished 10 minutes ago.  It’s comprised of shirts and other, ahem, favorite items of clothing worn between 1996-2010.  And yes, it’s yuuuge!  It will make a great picnic/beach/family snuggle/blanket fort quilt.

What a great gift! My wife got a graduation quilt made from all her old jeans. It's our favorite picnic blanket. there's just something comforting about well-worn clothes...

If I was unclear, I must say we paid someone else to do the quilting!  I was not about to teach myself on this project. 

Here is one I machine-quilted, however.  Another quilt top in Mother’s closet; we’re guessing late 1950s/early 1960s.  She marked how she wanted it quilted, so all I had to do was respect her wishes.  Mother helped pick the backing, I quilted (in one day; I have no craft room to leave things unfinished) and bound it (ETA over many days).  It was a good project to work on while sitting with her in the hospital.  Some days, it looked familiar to her.  I finished on 2 January, and it’s on my Queen-sized bed.  It is warm, and I love the feel of laying on top of it.

There is one more unfinished quilt top.  It cried out to be hand-quilted.  I was going to learn on it, but CrowMan helped me see reality—time is of the essence.  The Hawaiian quilter has a new job.

I have a quilt that looks quite similar.  My husband's grandma made it for him.
Time for a change.  I am yungmom, but have wanted a new username for some time.

How is he dealing with it?  Right now we are in limbo about my daughter's graduation ceremony.  It isn't scheduled till May, but she is really struggling that it may be canceled.

He’s shrugging it off and ready to be in the real world.  What else can he do? 

If he ever decides to get a Masters degree, though, the bubonic plague won’t keep me away.  I need to be able to cheer my fool head off.  :P

What a cool quilt, & a great idea to put together his personal history into it.  8)

I didn't go to my college graduation. It took me an extra year to finish because I had worked the entire time, & I actually didn't have much sentimental investment in college or my time there. Many other students were in similar positions - their focus was on finishing & getting on with life. My parents weren't too bummed, they said they could live with not going to commencement & finishing & having the diploma was what mattered. I had it mailed to me.

I did not have enough old jeans, so CrowMan and I found some 57” wide denim.  I was initially going to just use the strips on the sides, but felt it would look more ‘put together’ if I did some down the middle, as well.

It took most of last week to sew everything together, rip, sew, rip and finally get everything laying fairly flat.  I pressed everything yesterday.  As soon as the Stay-Home order is lifted, a friend will come over and help me sandwich it all together.

I was going to call it ‘The Military Brat’.  CrowMan said the strips look like cobblestones, so our Jana suggested ‘The Road of Progression and Knowledge’.  It works for front and back.  Thank you. ;)
