Nate's Memories

Nate passed away at a young age, and his wife had me make this for her - something for her to wrap up in and remember happy times.   There are two rows of t-shirts and steelworker bandanas, then I filled in the rest in Bonnie K. Hunter's strip twist pattern using dress shirts, and lots of fun boxers and bandanas. (middle picture).   The backing is the same blue as the borders on the front.  I quilted a free motion pattern using 3 sizes of circles connected one one side, with a meander between sets of circles (bottom picture) It's about a full bed size (83 x 92)  The label on the back is simply his name.
