T-Shirt Quilt

The special ordered T-shirt Quilt is finished and ready to drop in the mail. It's even finished a full week ahead of schedule. Gotta like that!!

Quilt stats:
Made from T-shirt fronts and backs, cut to 12.5" squares. Used "Wonder Under" to attach squares to white muslin.  (Fabric stabilizer will be used on future quilts without any muslin squares).
Due to not having enough T-shirts added to blocks in the middle to personalize and stretch the quilt. 
Borders, sashing & setting squares are Kona cotton.
Backed with White Muslin
Quilting bobbin thread & Top thread match, to avoid having white pokeys popping out on top.
Finished Measurements approx. 58 x 72
Hours to make: 60
Price for this quilt: $250
A special label for a special quilt
Finally came up with a quilt label that wouldn't be too foo-foo for a guys quilt and still have the business logo as a part of it. It's was done with a Print Shop program and then printed on printable fabric with an inkjet printer. I like how it turned out.  What do you think?

Wouldn't a T-shirt quilt make a great graduation gift, a birthday present or a special Christmas gift?
How many T-shirts do you have with special memories attached to them? Why not turn them into a quilt that will be loved and used often?

Prices for T-shirt quilts will vary depending on the number of designs you'd like to include and how many inkjet printed pictures you might want to include.

There's still time to get your quilt ordered and finished before May/June graduations.  Just send me an email at: oneteachingmom@yahoo.com
