Everyone loves T - shirts, right? Soft and comfy, they can be plain or decorated. Being a cotton girl, I've got plenty of T - shirts in my drawer, with this one being my all time favorite:
So true, right? Lots of people comment when I wear it! By the way, it's still available over at shirt.woot.com (no affiliation).
Why all this T - shirt talk?? Because there's more T - shirt quilts happening in the house! A good friend of mine commissioned me to make six quilts from her late husband's T - shirts, along with tool fabric that he talked her into buying at shop hops. Though I never met him, he must have been a sweet guy!
So I have been having a blast playing with really fun fabrics and creating special quilts for her, her daughters, and grandchildren. Two tops are done, measuring approximately 55" x 70".
A third one is almost finished, as it just needs sashing and borders. Some quilters don't want to deal with t -shirt quilts but I think they are a lot of fun - endless possibilities! And I've been so inspired by this project that I may finally make one for my hubby (and clear out my closet at the same time!!). I'll keep you posted with my progress.
Have a great weekend quilting!
