Rock & Roll Quilt

Happy New Year!  I’m finally getting back to some sewing and quilting which makes me happy!  I got this t-shirt quilt back from the quilters last week and managed to get the binding on in record time.

This is a t-shirt quilt made from rock concert t-shirts that one of the teachers I used to work with collected over the years.  There were a lot of t-shirts in her collection!  I think there were something like 30+ and I wanted to use the backs and the fronts for most of them.  I puzzle pieced them together and used as little sashing as I could to keep the size down.  I didn’t have any border but my quilter suggested I add something to keep things from stretching so I added a 1.5 inch border that acts as a “picture frame” for the blocks.

Check out the extra wide backing fabric that I found at fabric.com.  It looks like old, ratty blue jeans and goes perfectly with the rock & roll theme.

I can’t wait to return my friend’s t-shirts all made into a quilt!
