Jordan’s T-Shirt Quilt

Share

Gennell Neel made this T-Shirt Quilt for her granddaughter, Jordan from her high school shirts.  She did a great job with it! Jordan graduated from Marianna High School in 2010.  The quilt is backed with our Quilters Blenders Yellow Gold 108” wide quilt backing and is filled with Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting also from our shop.  I stipple quilted it and did the binding for her.  Thanks to her grandmother, Jordan can keep her t-shirts and high school memories close!

My sister, Iris Tye Melvin made this T-shirt quilt for Mary and Ferrell Newsome as a birthday present for their granddaughter, Sara.  It is made from shirts from her years of playing softball and includes a special message from her dad, Jay.  I quilted it in Balls, Bats and Gloves with a row of Softballs at the top and bottom.  It’s backed with our Navy Blue Quilters Blenders quilt backing and is filled with Hobbs Heirloom batting.  An All-Star quilt for an All-Star player!

Brenda Jackson asked me to make her a quilt out of all the t-shirts she had saved from Kenny Chesney concerts she has been to.  He’s her favorite country music singer!  I pieced it together with Cosmos Blue Swirls fabric (which we carry).  It is backed with our 108” Quilters Blenders Blue Atoll and the batting is Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 from our shop.  I quilted it in music notes and guitars!

Puzzle Quilt

Share

Candy Shuff asked us to make a puzzle quilt for her son Alex who picked out the colors and prints he wanted in it (great job!).  My sister, Iris and I pieced both the top and back.  The back of the quilt features an Autism Awareness T-shirt from his school.  All of the fabric came from our shop and it has our soft Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting inside.  I quilted it in a Jigsaw Puzzle design.

Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Quilt

Share

Mike Taylor asked us to make him a T-shirt quilt out of the motorcycle shirts he’s collected over his years of riding.  So we did!  He picked the colors (Harley!) and we went to work.  My sister, Iris and I pieced the top, then I quilted it with Flames and a Harley Sportster. All of the fabric is from our shop and it’s backed with our 108” wide Quilters Blenders Yellow Gold.  Mike has some really great tees and now they’re preserved so he can enjoy them on his bed.  We can do the same for you!  🙂
