Rose Mary Swilley made this fantastic T-Shirt quilt for her husband from his high school Baseball and Basketball jerseys. She did an excellent job putting it together with a black drop shadow effect for the individual shirts. It’s a wonderful way to preserve treasured shirts and keep those memories alive! I stipple quilted it in purple in keeping with the school colors and bound it in black to frame the shirts.
Stacey Strickland and his wife asked me to make a T-Shirt Quilt for their daughter, Lauren as a Christmas present. It includes her T-shirts along with some of her dad’s plus a handkerchief and doilies of her grandmother. I put it together with lime green fabric in solid and chevrons. Georgiana Hand did the machine embroidery. It is filled with our Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 Batting for just the right weight and feel. I backed it with our 108” Softie Lime Green Quilt Backing and quilted it in Square Spirals. A great tribute to Lauren’s many interests and her family!
