Inspiration: T-Shirt Quilts

Hi friends, One of my favourite blogs is the Detroit-based Sweet Juniper!, and recently I've also been enjoying Sweet Juniper: WoodCraft. The blogs are both thoughtful and thought-provoking; they make me laugh and, often, touch my heart. The WoodCraft post that went up last Tuesday was no exception. I'm not always a fan of T-shirt quilts, but this one, and the story behind it, left me sitting at my desk with tears in my eyes. Of course, as often seems to happen in the blogosphere, it wasn't long before I saw another touching t-shirt quilt; this one made for a young lady's 18th birthday. This has a different style and a different feeling, made as it was for a girl who'll be heading off to college in the fall, but it too left me feeling a bit wistful. If you're interested in making a quilt like this, head over to look at our instructions for making a memory quilt. Or take a stroll through blogland. There's lots and lots and lots of inspiration (and instruction) out there. If you have made a quilt like this, I'd love to hear about it. E-mail me photo or leave a link in the comments section, and I'll feature it on the blog! ps Don't forget to enter for your chance to win one of TWO prizes. Each winner will receive an assortment of Bamboo Baby yarn from Patons. To enter, leave me a link to your favourite Canadian craft blog on yesterday's post. As usual, the contest closes Friday at 5 p.m. and I’ll post a winner next Monday. Good luck!!
