Midweek Makers #371

Welcome to another week of Midweek Makers!

My share is the finished t-shirt quilt made from soccer jerseys. 

Now, I'll admit, when my client, Denise, handed over the jerseys, my first thought was that this might be a boring quilt because all the jerseys were essentially the same. Same team, same number. And a lot of black and white.

Since the shirts had raglan sleeves, I was able to pull that into the design, along with using portions of the necklines, usually a no-no. But both of those additions added nicely to to make this a more interesting quilt. And a t-shirt tut for dealing with polyester, necklines, and raglan sleeves, is coming this Friday - don't miss it!

Moving on, how about these quilts from last week's party?

Karen's Quilting shared with us this interesting Snail's Trail top,

Not Afraid of Color shared her progress on the 2023 SAHRR, adding some stars,

and Bell Creek Quilts showed off a patriotic signature quilt.

My Favorite Patterns


  1. Oh Susan, what a lovely quilt. I understand why your first impression was “boring.” But it’s definitely not. And it’s going to be so special for the one who wore those jerseys.

  2. Great t-shirt design. The edge-to-edge piecing (w/o sashes) gives a real graphic punch and the corners of the sleeves/necklines add visual interest.

  3. Thanks for featuring one of the QOV signature quilts!

  4. Oh wow that's an interesting t-shirt quilt. I have always been intimidated by t-shirt quilts since they are not made of classic quilting cotton!


Thank you so much for just made my day!
