C'est finis! Baby brother's new quilt

The Memento quilt for the little boy who's sister has this quilt, is complete!  This commission was extra special as it was actually for two quilts.  The young man's grandfather, for who he was named, passed away this year, and his mother collected several of his shirts to use in a quilt of her own. 

Hers, a lap quilt, includes fabrics from both father and grandson and measures roughly 56" x 60":

The young man's quilt is much larger - measuring 77" x 89":
