Boy {Memory Quilt}

May always brings Mother's Day, flowers, and graduations!

This memory quilt was commissioned for a young man that attended the same high school and elementary schools of my sons.
His quilt includes items ranging from baby outfits and baby quilts, to Little League jersey and concert tshirts.

I had many, many ideas run through my head, but I finally settled on simple. 

I decided to unify all the colors with a gray sashing.

I quilted it with Omni Gray in a meandering pattern on my longarm.

I went with my standard minky backing. This time, in a gray to reflect the sashing on the front. 
I figure if the recipient isn't too sentimental about their clothing items made into a quilt, at least the soft backing will encourage to cuddle under them.

Black binding framed it out.
