Retirement Quilt Done!

The T-shirt Quilt is finally finished. I finished the binding yesterday and added the label last night. It turned out pretty cute. It's for a friend I work with at the Tulare City School District. She is retiring after 31 years of service. (I remember when she started!) The School District has 14 schools and I needed 16 blocks. One of the shirts had a nice saying about Educators and I had Kathy Morrison make a large label for the last one. It says "Presented to SueAnn Hillman in appreciation of 31 years of service to the students of the Tulare City School District" Linda Matthews quilted. I wasn't about to take that on. I couldn't have possibly finished it by June 2.

But anyway, Linda did a wonderful job on it. I'm sure SueAnn will love it.


  1. What a great T-Shirt quilt. Your friend is LuckY!!

  2. The T shirt quilt turned out great! Glad you had a great time on the Shop hop. Looks like you got a lot of great stuff!

  3. I wasn't sure about the instructions you gave for the embroidered block, but now I can see how well it fits in with the other blocks. Looks great! I have wanted to make one of these t-shirt quilts for a long time for a fund raiser for the Moon Festival in Hanford. I have been the designer and screen printer for this annual event since 1982 and have quite a few t-shirts to use. So maybe you could give me some pointers next time we see each other.
