Today I’m devoting this post to Peggy who made this fantastic T-shirt quilt for her granddaughter.  Not only is it large, it is filled with wonderful memories.
 Another view.  That is Peggy on the right.
 Peggy put a lot of thought into making this quilt.  It tells of the places her granddaughter went and the things she did.  Note the scrap on the pink square above the block that says Caledonia High School.  That little scrap is what was left of the girl’s baby blanket.
 Peggy incorporated just about everything but the kitchen sink (what teen ager would go near that anyway) in making this quilt.  Above Peggy included her granddaughter's Girl Scout Sash and badges on the bottom border.  How clever.
Check out the little romper suit in one block and a bib makes up another block.
 This is another piece of baby clothing.  Note the pink diamonds on the sashing between the blocks.  I wish you could see this quilt for real as it is really awesome.  Peggy, your granddaughter must be thrilled and you should be proud!  Thanks for sharing with us. 

And a special thank you goes to Judi A.  The first time I saw this quilt, I didn't have my camera.  Then, I was unable to make it to the Attic Window Quilt Shop when Peggy shared her quilt during a Bee, so Judi took the pictures and shared them with me.  

ON ANOTHER NOTE: Sew Happy Geek has a tutorials for a woven snowball blocks.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

WOW!! This is a fabulous quilt. I like the little clothing added from when she was little. I especially love her leftovers from her baby quilt. Good Job Grandma
