I love it!  This is the best t-shirt quilt I've seen! It's so cute to see the children's sized shirts still intact.

I think it's great how she incorporated the tshirts without cutting them up.  Totally different take on it.  Usually I don't like tied quilts, but the way she used the same color yarn/thread as the background shirt really makes a difference.  Great job Mom!

This is the best t-shirt quilt I have ever seen.

Did she actually use whole shirts or cut the fronts out on some of them?

Also, do you know if she sewed them down on a piece of fabric for placement?

Your Mom is awesome!  I have been saving t-shrit from my three kids in hopes of making them a quilt when they go off to college.  I love the looks of this one so much more than the traditional t-shirt quilt.

What is the backing?

Thanks for sharing!

She cut the fronts and back apart and then used some entire fronts and some entire backs, depending on the shirt.

If I remember correctly, she did sew them down to a very light piece of fabric before putting the batting and backing on.

Looks like cotton sheeting.
