T-Shirt Memory Quilt

Several customers have asked about tshirt quilts so I finished this one using my daughter’s shirts.  I hope this helps show you a new way to have a tshirt quilt.  I like the layout with a variety of shirt sizes and the added fabric pieces between the shirts.  I used my daughter’s favorite colors and those that went well with the shirts.  It is bright because she likes bright!  Not all tshirt quilts scream like this one!!  🙂

I was able to use fronts & backs of the shirts as well as the little emblems that are above the front pockets.  I also used small designs on the sleeves.  Quite fun!

This quilt was quilted with Superior Thread, Rainbow, Gypsy which is a bright pink variegated thread.   Here is a photo of the back showing the turquoise flannel backing and the quilting.  I used a freehand floral design in the border and then a variation of that with swirls for the body of the quilt.

Let me know if you’d like me to make a tshirt quilt for you.  Of course, the price varies depending on the size you want and the number of shirts.

    Love the quilt, Joyce. I guess I like bright colors, too; they really pop on this quilt. As a mostly non-quilter, but having sewn quite a bit in my lifetime, what do you do to keep the t-shirt material from stretching and looking weird? Anyway, great job!! I’ll bet K loves it, too!

  3. This is great!!!! My daughter has already requested one, but as a BEGINNING quilter, I will need inspiration, YOU inspire me!!!
