T-shirt Quilt for Police Officer

This Quilt was a commission quilt made for a friend of the Nitro, WV Police Officer who was hit by a car
Around the borders I machine embroidered (free-motion) the text from their wedding. I used Wonderfil's "Spaghetti" thread (12wt) and an embroidery needle.
I stippled/meander quilted most of this quilt. I ripped out the seams of a few police uniforms and used the uniform material for a few of the blocks. On other blocks, I just took off the badges and appliqued them onto t-shirt material.
The backing is WVU colors and the hanging sleeve is in the same color.

Finished size 40" x 50"
