A T-Shirt Quilt!

Cutting all the T-shirts apart

A month or so ago...I was shipped a very large box. Inside were 42 T-shirts and 2 button down shirts and one barn jacket. They were treasured clothing items from a dear friend's husband. He is a very tall man so the shirts were quite large. I was asked to make a T-shirt quilt for a birthday present for him. I am so excited to show you the process and how it turned out. I love making items like this because they are so sentimental and personal. It turned into something really special for the two of them. Memories sown together to be cherished and used for years to come.

Button down shirts and jacks

All the extra T-shirt pieces

My bed became the holding area - getting all the pieces separated into different sizes
Trying to lay out a pattern that works. Sorry about the strange angle - this quilt is very BIG!
The finished quilt!
