A Very Special T Shirt Quilt

I want to share a very special t shirt quilt that I was asked to be a part of.

About six months ago I was asked if I could make a t shirt quilt for a special person in Colorado who had passed away.  When I make these t shirt quilts it always is a surprised the different shirts that I come across.  Everyone has there own personality, there own likes and you wonder what the story is behind each t shirt.

This individual loved music so that's what I used for sashing in between the t shirts. His favorite color was yellow so the borders were yellow with some black in it.  There were four t shirts that I couldn't add to the front so I put a row of these shirts on the back.  I couldn't just leave them off cause they mean't something to him also I'm sure.

The quilting was done with the pattern "city windows" (I hope that's right) through all the t shirts except the teal t shirt below which is his picture. This one I chose to just stitch in the ditch around the picture.

   The T shirt quilt will be a wonderful memory of this individuals life.

I was glad they asked me to be a part of it.

So try something new or just finish a project you've got on the shelf.  Till next time.
