T-Shirt Quilts

A Sister, of a Friend's, Friend. . .

You always wonder where the story will lead when it starts out that way, right?  Well, this one has a very happy ending.  Because of the stretch above, I was fortunate enough to be introduced (albeit through email) to Leanne.

Leanne was wanting a T-Shirt quilt made from her husband's concert shirts along with several others.  She sent all of the shirts to me, via her mom. (Thanks Kathy!)  I supplied the additional materials needed; batting, thread, fabric for binding and of course the labor.  After a little over 3 weeks, mind you Thanksgiving was stuck in there, here is what we have now.

The "front" of the quilt using the fronts of the T-shirts

The "back" of the quilt using the backs of the shirts

The finished quilt is approx 60 inches square.  I am very pleased with the way it turned out and can't wait to hear what her husband thinks about it.

Thank you again Leanne!!  You have made my day by allowing me to make this quilt  for you :)  I'm always happy when I get to quilt.

If anyone is interested in their own T-Shirt quilt, feel free to contact me through Etsy on my side bar or visting my shop directly
