Finish it up Friday

Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts sponsors "Finish it up Friday" so people can share the projects they finish each week.  I only finish a couple a year, but I've finished the Memory Quilt I was working on and thought I'd share.  All the blocks are made from our friend Tomi's shirts. He was killed in an auto accident last February. Tomi's family is is town from Slovenia and I'll be giving it to them today.
It measures ~60x80" after washing. I quilted it on the longarm at our local quilt shop - love longarm rental. It took about two hours, including setup.

It's a lovely gift. The quilt my mom made for us for our wedding is a scrap quilt, and recognizing the fabrics is a walk in sentimentality. I'm sure that one will be bittersweet. You did a wonderful job matching the fabrics and pattern. That's one skill I haven't been able to pick up.
