T- Shirt Quilts Finished

Six finished t-shirt quilts, all ready to go.

Commissioned back in March, they were started in April with the supplied 'tool' theme fabric. Such a sweet guy - he had his wife buy tool fabric whenever they went on shop hops. She certainly had quite the collection to work with!

Since my sewing machine was in the shop, I thought it the perfect time to finish these up and move them from their resting place of the Innova quilt frame.

Now she's all clean!

Much better, wouldn't you say? But I feel so exposed! Now you can see 70% of the stash - I really must work on trimming that down. For new fabric, of course.

All quilts use a lightweight poly batting, and have stippling on them, with either Glide Military Gold or Glide Cool Grey.

And because I'm running low on my most used thread color, Sand, plus a few others, I decided to place an order at BobbinCentral. Look at these yummy colors that arrived!

I'm well stocked now - just need to find storage space.

So another saga of t-shirt quilts has come to an end, though I'm sure there will be more in my future!

Happy Quilting!


  1. I think a huge pat on the back is deserved for finishing all those quilts. And I'm sure it does feel super good to have your spaced straightened back up. Those new threads are yummy!

  2. Congratulations on getting all 6 quilts finished. They came together so well and I am sure they will be appreciated and loved.

  3. My husband has me but Route 66 fabrics on shop hops. LOL

  4. Hi Susan,
    That stack of finished t-shirt quilts must be so satisfying for you. All those new thread stack looks like new fun. ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. Great job on showcasing those t-shirts. Kudos for finishing this project. What's next in the queue?

    1. Oh Ann! There's really too many projects to list!
