Barb’s T-shirt Quilt

Last Christmas, my dad’s wife asked if I’d make a t-shirt quilt for her daughter Barb. I started in February but didn’t have enough shirts so talked to Barb and she said she’d get more to me. Last week I reached out again and told her I needed them now or I wouldn’t be able to make it since we are moving cross country. That lit a fire under her and I got them within three days.

I’ve never made a t-shirt quilt this basic but it’s what she wanted. She also threw in a twist by adding an old pillow case (that’s the white area on the left, which is more visible in person) The quilt is 70 x 56

You might call it “basic”, but I’m sure she’ll love it - well done!

Very nice! I really like how the pillowcase creates that larger square on the left. You did a great job of balancing it with the ‘Wilson’ underneath. I agree with @wittychild, Barb is going to love it!

Superb! I’m amazed at all the stuff you are cranking out even while you are prepping for a cross country move!

I’m a bit crazy for doing so :woozy_face:

Look at the green shirt with 22 on it and you’ll see why that name is important to her.

This is lovely! It looks like such a cozy blanket to curl up under with a good book or a movie. Love the idea of incorporating a pillowcase, and the few shirts on angles to mix it up a bit!

Check this out T-shirt Quilts for our sons … they are made with fronts but you could probably use the entire shirt for extra warmth.
