A few months ago I had a request to make a t-shirt quilt for a young teenaged girl. Her mom supplied me with lots and lots of t-shirts, bandanas, house coats and even an infant receiving blanket from the hospital. 👍😀 With such a nice large collection of special T-shirts and fabric I knew this was going to be a fabulous memory blanket full of random snippets of this young lady’s childhood.
It was truly a joy for me to design, lay out and create this t-shirt quilt. There’s no doubt in my mind that this memory t-shirt quilt will be a cherished possession for decades.
The quilt top front is framed with a medium/dark shade of royal purple which is 1 of the colors for Clemson University. I chose this color since there were a few Clemson tiger shirts; this young lady is a big fan of Clemson.
For the quilt back I chose a nice torque isle, lavender and grey plaid. I don’t use a general template for any of the t-shirt quilts I make; each one is laid out to balance the colors as well as the square/rectangular cuts from each t-shirt.
