Default T-Shirt Quilt

One year from picking up t-shirts to delivering the completed quilt. My granddaughter played soccer and lacrosse for 15 years. This was one of the biggest challenges I've faced as a quilter but wow - did I ever learn a lot! This is the front, back, and a close-up of the center showing the quilting which was done as circles to look like balls.

That's terrific and I'll bet she loves it! I've never tried one of these and they sound very difficult, so I probably never will.

You've done a very nice job of putting them all together. It looks professional and smooth.

Exceptional work. I rarely see T-shirt quilts without sashing and borders but yours certainly worked well without it...and so many T-shirts to play with. Your GD is going to cherish it. Awesome job!

I made a deal with my husband that if he would clean out his t-shirt drawers filled with t-shirts he will never wear, I would make a quilt. Yours is a great inspiration!

You did a great job on this one. Your gd will be so pleased. It is a difficult challenge to do t-shirts sometimes and you mastered it.
