Cute Girly Quilt Goes to California




I love what the pink does to this t-shirt quilt. My customer wanted pink and green sashings so that is what she got. These are so much fun to make and put together for people. I did not use corner blocks on this one because the t-shirts were different sizes. By using 16 shirts, actually more than that as I combined a couple of the shirts, it made the quilt square. She wanted a throw size and I think it turned out very pretty. Posted by Picasa

this T-shirt quilt has inspired me to get one started. I've saved the t-shirts from my 2 daughters, & my son. Wanted to "someday" make one for each of them. I think "someday" has come.

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.
