I was asked to make a T-Shirt quilt for a graduating high-school student.  He will be going to college in the fall and it was designed to fit on his dorm bed, which is a Twin Extra Long.

I didn't quilt it.  My friend Sue Salinger did.  Didn't she do a great job?  I hope he likes it.
Another new finish is this one for my granddaughter who is turning twenty-one in July.   This is her birthday quilt. 

I hadn't bought enough backing fabric, so I made a giant four patch.  I quilted it in a fairly simple and comfy style. 

The patch was something my granddaughter had pinned on pinterest.  It just had to live here.  I'm pretty sure she doesn't read my blog, so she will be surprised. I hope you are having a good week and that you

Quilt happy,

Hello Marilyn,

Love all these quilts. The patch on your granddaughters quilt made me smile. I am sure she will get a huge buzz receiving this.

Happy quilting.
