    Quilt of Memories--a T-shirt quilt

    I'd been saving T-shirts with the thought of "someday" making a T-shirt quilt for myself. Several years ago, my DD took them home, saying she was tired of seeing them in my sewing room and that she would make it for me. This is what she presented me with for Mother's Day. It is so much nicer than anything I would have made.

    She added patches from my flying, rallying and younger DD's high school marching band days. She included blocks from her's, her sister's and my colleges. She even put in blocks of the Chicago Blackhawks and my Porsche interests. My brothers' and son-in-law's midget racing teams are included. I've attached some close-ups of these special blocks.

    I love t-shirt quilts. My goal is make one for all of brothers and sisters. We are "t-shirt wearers" so they have been told to save at least 6 to 9 of their favorites and I will try to make each a quilt. GREAT JOB ON YOUR QUILT.

    I agree. I love seeing what different people do with their t-shirt quilts. I have a box of my grandson's shirts waiting to be made up!
    God Bless,
