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!
