T-shirt Quilt Finished

Here is the t-shirt quilt I made for my daughter.  The shirts were her Dads.  Newer readers may not know that he passed just a little over 4 years ago.  So this is also a memory quilt for her.  I asked my son if he wanted one too but he declined.  I think now that has seen this one he may change his mind.

Jackie at Wattafind quilted it for me.  If you look closley at the bottom of the eagle block you will see that she also embroidered it for me too.  It has his name and year of birth and death. 




This quilt is a very good representation of him.  His interests and accomplishments are all represented here.  You will see more t-shirt quilts from me in the future.

a very nice memory for you daughter - I don't think I knew that your husband had died. Making use of t-shirts like is a nice idea, I have never made one

The t-shirt quilt turned out wonderful. The Blues Brother shirt caught my eye. That is one of my favorite movies! I love making t-shirt quilts. I have made at least 10 and I am currently working on number 11 and 12 with three more on the schedule. The one I am making right now is for a art competition. It is all free motion machine quilted, but I am adding lots of embroidery and big stitch quilting to art it up a bit.
