Good morning!  Here's a quick post for today.  I finally finished my son's memory blanket so he can take it with him to school in a few weeks.  It is made out of collected treasured T's he purchased and/or rec'd as gifts and at sports camps in the past few years.  He'll be traveling to another state so making this blanket was very important to me as it will ease the home sick blues most freshmen go thru their first year away from home. 

I've seen many T-shirt projects but I have such a difficult time machine quilting large blankets and quilts on my little sewing machine.  When I cam accross this blog called Maiden Jane, she had a pattern that didn't call for machine quilting and knew it was right up my alley.  The blanket was finished in one week, just in time to pack it up and get it ready for traveling. My family can now have the dining table and living room back! 

What treasured items to you collect?
