TEE SHIRT QUILT



I was asked to do this Tee Shirt quilt.   I was sent the fronts of the tee shirts and some small pieces cut out already, notice the sides....

The person who owned these tee shirts felt that he would save room by cutting out the designs on his shirts and just save them for later (small pieces)
It took me a while to figure out how to place the larger ones and then I decided to just do a border with the smaller ones.


I searched high and low for the sashing fabric...I know...I know....I just had this idea in my head and wasn't gong to settle for anything less.  Luckily my husband understood and didn't mind taking me to several places....well...more than several.  

Now I just have to quilt it.  I should have already had it done today but I lost motivation.  

Some of you may know but at the risk of repeating myself I have my first grandbaby.


He weighed in at 10 pounds 9 oz...left the hospital at almost 11 pounds.

He is sooo precious.  He spent his time in the NICU for his hospital stay.  Since he was so big he had low blood sugar and he and the mom had an infection.

We are so glad to have him home...I can't wait to have him to myself without parents watching me....trust me, we have waited years to finally get one and well....it is spoil city at our house.

  7. I am glad you did the T-Shirt quilt and not me. I would have said no when I found out the shirts were already cut out.

  8. I've seen pictures of your new precious one, but I don't think you can post too many, Congratulations! The quilt looks great, be careful with the quilting, I found out real fast that my machine and needles don't like the printed part of the shirt.

  10. I am also working on a T-shirt quilt, just need to get them in the right order of size. Congratulations on the new grandbaby. My grand-daughter just turned 9 months, she is the first girl in the family in 35 years. I have been watching her in the evenings, so have not done any quiltting or blogging lately. It is so easy to spoil them.
