T-Shirt Quilt

This is my first T-shirt quilt.  It is done for the customer that I did the Jeans quilt for.  I started this one in July with the T-shirts Bonnie gave me, interfaced them and sashed them.
She gave me a loosely woven wool blanket for backing.  It had stretch to it.  Therefore the quilt bunches up some as the backing pulls it together.  Stretchy backings are not a good thing on a longarm.  I don't think she'll have a problem with this though.   It is a nice memory of her husband.  You can tell the shirts were well worn.

  1. I have never seen a t-shirt quilt in reality; the Web is such a place of wonder!
