This is a memorial quilt made from some old t-shirts as a commissioned piece of work.  It was my first attempt at a t-shirt quilt, so I was pretty nervous.

I had to use some medium-weight fusible interfacing on the back of each scrap, so the finished top was WAY bulkier and heavier than I was used to.  This made maneuvering the top to quilt it very difficult.  But, I managed.  See for yourself:

This is very lovely!  A different feel then the usual t-shirt quilt, but I really like what you did with it.

If you are working on (or thinking about starting) a postage stamp quilt with 1.5" squares, I have scraps and squares to give away.  PM me if you're interested.

That's a great idea for a t-shirt quilt.  I really like it.  You did a wonderful job.

This is so wonderful!  Is the whole front made with t-shirts?  What is the backing?  I love the finished look!  A mix between classic quilting style and new wave style.

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

The whole thing is t-shirts except for the border.  The border and backing are the same material - a Kona cotton.

Thanks for all the nice comments!
