    T shirt quilt finally done!

    This is my first t shirt quilt made for my niece, her hubby pass away and she has been after me to make this quilt for some time now.. I didn't know how to start but did a lot of looking on the web and here on the forum..

    Then I seen a t shirt quilt that wattwestide made it was beautiful with shadowing block it looked like the block were floating on her quilt and I knew that this was the quilt I wanted to make...With her help I made this one, she helped me so much, we email each other and she helped me step by step.. I couldn't have made this without her help.. what a wonderful person she is.. Also thank you to all the other ladies here that I read and looked at the quilt they had posted, which helped out a lot..So a BIG thank you to all ...

    I gave it to my niece and she loved it, I was very happy the way it turned out and glad that my niece loved it. It was worth all the time to make it to see the tears in her eyes when she looked at it..and said ..that is Bill...,

    Or is the scrappy a quilt underneath your t-shirt quilt?

    I think the light blue background and the black shadowing make your quilt a winner. Great job and I can see why it brought tears to your niece's eyes. Thanks for sharing.
    The bad news is - time flies.
    The good news is - you're the pilot!

    I have a T-shirt quilt to make for my BIL and I've looked at what seems like a hundred pictures of them trying to get some ideas. I will say I think yours is by far the best looking one I've seen. You did a wonderful job on it! I already made one for myself but it is very basic, you have really inspired me to keep looking until I can come up with something besides a plain run-of-the-mill design.

    I love this shadow look. I am being commissioned to make a t shirt quilt for a mom who has lots of little T's and an ongoing process as they grow out of the shirts. I am crazy trying to figure out where to go with it.

    I absolutely love this quilt. I was looking for the perfect way to do a t-shirt quilt for my boys. I have 50 shirts set aside for each of them.

    awsome! I know the help you must have got from her as I live in Canada and met her on this board.We live across the Detroit river from each other and now is our coffee stop when we`re on our way.
    She has helped me get things that are too expensive to ship here.
    She is a wonderful person and now able to call her my friend!
