A Special Graduation Quilt

Our daughter has received many, many wonderful gifts for her high school graduation recently, but I thought it would be neat to highlight a few that might give others some ideas about neat gifts.

This quilt was made by my sister-in-law.  She wrote a few months ago, asking what colors Lauren's college dorm room was going to be.  I told her black and white, with coral and light aqua.  She made this beautiful quilt for her bed!  It's so, so soft and Lauren loves it!
But on the back, my sister-in-law did something very special for Lauren.  She put squares at the corners that meant something special to Lauren:  Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse because of our family trips to Disney World, Texas Rangers because Lauren is a HUGE fan, Tiger print for our school mascot, and a college logo from where Lauren will be attending in the fall!  

Isn't that unique?!  So personal and special!  So warm and cozy!  No, Lauren won't share, and I don't blame her one bit!

I make lots of t-shirt quilts, but I love this quilt idea.
