T-Shirt Quilt


EDIT:  I received this photo of a happy Dani with her new quilt.  Apparently she likes it!  Love to see happy quilt recipients!


I've been wanting to make a T-shirt quilt for a long time but it seems people are very reluctant to give up their T-shirts!  However, I had a call back in the spring from Chris who asked if I would be interested in making a T-shirt quilt for her daughter.  Her daughter is graduating with a Kinesiolgy degree in the fall.  I agreed and she brought me a box containing about 22 T-shirts.  I worked out a couple of design concepts, Chris let me know which one she liked and I ran with it.  Here are the pix.  I used all the T-shirts - including the little logos, etc., on the sleeves and backs.   





There were a few parts left but not enough for another row - I put them in the backing.


Chris and her husband just picked the quilt up and they seemed very happy with it.  I hope their daughter likes it, too!  I am really happy with it!

  4. It doesn't take much for tempers to flare and for lines to get crossed when people feel so adamant about a subject like this. POLITICS: AN EXCELLENT PROFESSION FOR CON-ARTIST
