Save Those T-Shirts

Summer is a great time to collect vacation t-shirts. But what do you do with all those shirts? Make a quilt! Then send me a photo of your special creation. My good friend, Carol, stopped by the store to show off the quilt she made for her husband who is a member of a car club. He had collected lots of car event shirts and she made an awesome quilt. She included embroidery and a great check border.

Carol had taken a t-shirt quilt class with me which included Andrea Funk's awesome book, How to Make a Too Cool T-Shirt Quilt. Andrea's method shows you how to be creative and design your quilt to take advantage of the different sizes and shapes of the t-shirt logos. Carol had mostly white t-shirts so she cleverly arranged them in columns and added "fillers" of small logos and embroidery on teal fabric (hubby's car color). Carol's border treatment is perfect! Thank you, Carol, for sharing your quilt with us.
