Big Man T-shirt Quilt

Well this is a really winner quilt for a really Champion Guy. No, I do not know him but I know he must be a great guy because his wife had this made for him for his Birthday which is this month. I am sure he will like it. He just has to be a real baseball fan and player too as his shirts are different team shirts. I hope he will think I did his shirts justice. There are over 30 shirts in this one.

Hi Jerre - this is Amy. I LOVE IT!! My husband will love it too! All of the shirts represent 23 years of the various teams my 3 son's have played on - baseball, football, basketball. Ronnie helped coach many of those teams. Our oldest is a senior in college now and one of the shirts was from his t-ball days when he was 4! Ronnie will treasure this always and I can't wait to see it in person. Thanks again for all your hard work!

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.
