Not a mini but very cool

This is my oldest daughter's first sewing project. She's 22 but never really had an interest until now. She got a sewing machine for Christmas and the first project was this quilt made from squares cut out of her high school t shirts and sweatshirts from the various activities she was involved in. She used a black on cream polka dot flannel for the backing so the finished quilt is very cozy and warm.

What a cool idea for all those tees and sweatshirts! That is something she can treasure forever. Amazing job for a first sewing project, too, wow!

Hope you're all doing well, Happy New Year! :)
