Mason's Graduation Quilt

I finished up another graduation quilt this week.
Graduation for us around here isn't until the first week of June 
so this is complete in plenty of time before all the festivities begin.


I like the variety on this quilt: football, choir, student council, 
volunteer opportunities, work, theater and church activities.   




Once again Lynn did a great job on the quilting.
Love all the loopy loops.

She also did a different quilting loop on the border.



Mason will be heading to Brigham Young University in the Fall.
Had to get that represented on the backing.

Details:
  • Finished size: 68 inches wide by 76 inches tall
  • 5 yds. of BYU fabric for the backing.  Mason's mama ordered it online since we don't live in Utah. Otherwise I think that an Utah JoAnn's would carry it.
  • 3 inch wide cut border of Kona in Charcoal to frame it off.  He didn't want any other sashing between shirts or columns.
  • This quilt incorporated about 45 t-shirts.  He had a LOT!  But many of them are small sections or logos. We did use one sweatshirt section.  I try not to use a lot of sweatshirt because it can be tough on the quilter, but one or two intermingled doesn't seem to be an issue.
