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! :)

  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.
