ok. technically this is a duvet cover, but i had NO clue where to put this. i made this last spring break, and i took it to college with me.

it's made out of tee shirts, fabric samples, and design projects. the shirts all have meaning, but i never wore them. the fabrics are swatches and left overs from costumes i designed and made for my high school theatre, and the projects (the orage and white swirly thing is one) were from my costume construction class. also, there are bits of fabric my friends wrote me notes on details:

the yellow blanket on the bottom is one my mom had when she was in college. the down blanket goes on the inside, and there are buttons on the bottom to close it.

I love it! I like the idea of sleeping under a quilt that's so personal. And it looks great too, like a pin board covered with keepsakes.

That is gorgeous! How long did it take you? And how is it working out washing it with the different types of materials? I love it!

i made most of it over spring break, then i worked on it for a few weekends after. i was really nervous washing it, cause i thought some of the fabric might shrink, but it turned out ok. i air fluffed it in the dryer, then i hung it out. the only problem was a swatch of fabric that made sequins. i didn't even think about it. the glue melted and now some of them fall off, but i don't mind it.

That is sooooo cute! I've been wondering about using t-shirt designs as quilt blocks--- you stole my idea! No, just kidding, but that is just what I have been wanting to do! (rushes off to measure bed). Wink
