A gift for my sister's 18th birthday. She's a gamer girl and a bit of a geek. After a particularly hard year (toe tumors and hospital stays), I thought she needed a warm 'n fuzzy hug. So I gathered a couple of her shirts, a couple of mine, and one of my fiance's. He embroidered a couple of squares (see the squid and the crab--his first embroidery projects ever). I enlisted some of her friends to help me pick out the perfect kawaii characters. My mom and I picked out most of the fabrics together, and the green and white floral bits came from my late Grammy's stash. It was a bit of a process, but in the end I think it came together quite nicely, and I love that it has a little bit of everyone sewn into it.








I'm pretty sure she liked it. Smiley

This may be my favorite quilt I have ever seen. 

Your use of shirts is so clever!
& that is pretty awesome embroidery for a first time ever.

I love that different people put something into it for her too.
Awesome work.
This rocks.

I...LOVE IT! Kawaii is currently a big obsession with me.  Grin

Sewing a little bit of everyone in there is the best way to make a blanket into a treasure, too. When she goes off to school or whatever she plans on doing with her life, she'll have a warm family hug every time she cuddles up with it.

I love that your fiance embroidered some squares, too. The squid and crab turned out great! I love the toilet paper and poo squares myself. Great work!
