Years ago, my daughter and her best friend, who I call my third daughter, both asked me to make them t-shirt quilts. Several years ago, I finally finished one for my second daughter, and you can see it HERE.
Then, naturally, I procrastinated on the next one. Last fall, I set in on it, and thought I’d have it done by Christmas, but that didn’t happen. Then I decided to try for her birthday in March, and still nothing!
But a couple weeks ago, they both came home from southern California to visit, so I rallied enough to get it done in time to give it to her while she was here.
It has a LOT of shirts in it. Too many to use on the front — so I put the extras on the back!
It’s a good queen sized quilt — it measures 80″ x 100″, so she can use it on her bed, or for dragging around wherever she wants to use it.
I pieced the top in four separate 40″ x 50″ sections, to make it easier to manage, then just sewed the sections together once I had them all completed. I used a Fairfield Low-Loft Polyester batting inside to keep from adding any more weight than necessary, and quilted an all-over meander on it with gray thread.
I think she liked it, and I’m glad she finally has it!
