Megan's T's

Megan and her grandmother made this t-shirt quilt.  What a great memory they created together.  This is a long quilt - it's 74 x 101

Megan is into music, so I quilted musical notes all over.  I used black thread because she wanted them to really stand out on the yellow back.

Jessie said her favorite colors are lime green and purple, so I found this fun backing:
