Not one, but TWO T-shirt quilts :)

Hi everyone! :)

I have been quite busy this past month working on a special project (only on the weekends, as my days are filled with my actual job! LOL!). 

A friend of Brian's reached out to him asking if I could make her something for her adult children. 

Her husband passed away last year, and she wanted to take his old T-shirts and turn them into quilts for his adult kids. And she wanted to know if I would make them for her. :) 

Well, I said yes, and now for the past month, every spare moment on the weekends has been making these :)

I finished them this past weekend, and Brian delivered them to his friend on Monday (and yes, she loved them, and yes, she cried!) :) 

Here they are ---

The one for the daughter :)

Each square is 15 1/2 inches X 15 1/2 inches.  

The "Poppy Seen Done Fixed It All" and the Dog's face T-shirts were too big to make into one square (the graphics on the T-shirts took up the entire front of the shirts) --- so I cut the graphic designs into two smaller squares (right down the middle) and then sewed them on the backs of leftover T-shirts to make two bigger squares on the quilt. :) 


The one for the son :) 

Obviously her husband had loved to fish! :)  I can't wait to hear if their kids liked them! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)


  1. Such a thoughtful gift. I'm sure they will love them!

  2. They both look gorgeous and I am sure they will be treasured! I admire your patients! I've not tried any quilting.

  3. These are the best t-shirt quilts I've ever seen! (It helps that Poppy's t-shirts are all in the same palette. And that so many of them are grandpa-themed.) Brilliant to use two squares for the large design. You did a great job with these.

  4. Oh these look amazing and you are so kind and clever to create them. I am sure they will love them and I can imagine the children snuggly in them and feeling like they are getting a hug from their dear dad...beautiful gifts..

  5. Oh wow - what a fabulous idea! It's so good of you to make these. They will be treasured forever I'm sure. And thanks for keeping on popping into my blog when I've been a bit busy lately to return the comments. Your support has been amazing over so many years! xx
