This is my t-shirt quilt--I'm a bit of a of a graphic tee collector--I used minky fabric around each shirt and for the backing.  It's so soft and cuddly!  I'm not the best at sewing--my home ec teacher would probably turn in her grave if she examined it too closely, but it makes me happy to have completed it! The bottom middle is a heat sensitive shirt, so it's fun to play with!


This is my husbands' t-shirt quilt, made from the shirts he got from his outdoor volleyball tournaments over the years.  I actually made this one years ago, and it has been at many more tournaments and picnics, but I wanted to show off both quilts together.

Thanks for looking!

They both look like they were fun to make and have a lot of memories in them.

Great job! I love the heat sensitive square, how fun! LOVE the volleyball shirts. I bet your old home ec teacher would be stoked that you're still sewing!
