Design wall Monday–graduation week

emily in front of her quilt
This is my great-niece Emily in front of the top of her t-shirt quilt. She ran cross-country forever. We had her high school graduation open house here at our home yesterday. Guests signed the backing for this quilt with fabric markers.
emily graduatingSome of you locals (Kansas City, MO area) may have seen her on TV news – we had her graduation last Monday in her front room so that her mom – Margaret – could attend. She is losing her 4 year battle with a really aggressive cancer. We are all spending a lot of time caring for her and her family. Sometimes life just sucks!

I hope you are happily quilting,

What a lovely quilt for your great niece, and a great idea to have all the guests' signatures on the back. It must have been a very emotional graduation for her, but so good her mother could be there.

I found you after some detective work: you have put a link to an old post on the linky at Patchwork Times. Perhaps you'd like to update the link, if that's possible.

Great t-shirt quilt. I'm sure your niece will love it forever. And, I agree, great idea to have folks sign the back.

Great quilt. And hugs for the whole family for both the sorrow and the joy.
