Some progress in the sewing room

My daughter requested a scrapping tee shirt quilt for her retreats.  She wanted certain blocks in the center and her favorite pj material in the quilt too.  I had the hardest time finding a fabric that seem to bring it all together , but keep similar color as the tie dyed block.  Finally, after much looking I found this fabric in Baton Rouge.   Of course, at first I didn't buy enough, but I had a chance to go back and get some more.  Then the issue of the back.  I found this fabric at home in my LQS.  It had the movement of the batik, but is cotton, so it will be comfortable to sleep under.  Notice the use adding of the pj fabric on the back.
 My friend Polly will be quilting it for me and I'll bring it to my daughter Leigh for our annual scraping retreat together in TX.
