Special T-Shirt Quilt

This is one of the t-shirt quilts that I have created for a customer recently. He wanted me to use a light gray fabric for the sashings. I just had to add some color so I put a narrow border of orange around the edge. I think it brings out the orange in some of the shirts.
I enjoy making these and every one of them has been a little bit different.

Your choice of the orange in the border was definitely a smart move. It really looks good, even if it is to match Texas's colors rather than TN's!

Great job and hope your customer was happy with it.

Lovely quilt..the orange border was the right choice!
I was just reading your comments on another blog about my snowy scene quilt with the farm buildings and the fence. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
I now have a blog instead of a website, if you would like to add it to your list. carolswinden.wordpress.com

When my sisters and I were very young all three of us loved to make things. I think that was the way kids entertained themselves in those days. Our mother sat us down with old clothes and needles and thread and we made our dolls clothes.
My creativity grew from there and I found myself in high school making all of my own clothes. I did get a lot of attention with my matching outfits including hats. Since I was shy maybe that was my way of creating my own world and at the same time getting attention.
I finally did get tired of making clothes and went into quilting. The first year I quilted I made every family member quilts, quilts and more quilts.
You can only make so many quilts and so many bags before you have no space left. What is a very nutty creative person going to do about this?? Well you are going to open an ETSY shop and sell some of this stuff, right?? http://fabricartist21.etsy.com/
My neighbor asked me to make her a T-Shirt Quilt and I have been doing that for over a year now. I take special orders through my Etsy shop. I have become very busy with this business and will continue to create t-shirt quilts as long as their are customers that want them.
