    I don't like the same old squares with sashing look of most t-shirt quilts. I thought the BQ pattern would work, and I really like how it turned out! Just finished the top on this one last night. Check out the hoodie pocket in just the right place to stash your tv remote! I'll have to make sure to quilt around it! I even found tiger stripe flannel for the back on this one! (Mizzou Tigers....)

    The next is a repost, but this time it's all done, binding and label. I just love it so much! This grad went to 5 colleges and the colors are for his high school and each college. His mom passed away a couple of years ago. Our sons played baseball together from 4th grade through high school and the last 2 years of college.

    These are for my oldest son's girlfriend and his childhood friend. He gets one when he graduates-he's 12 credits short!

    My son's girlfriend was a Mizzou "Golden Girl"

    I pieced the back with leftovers and all the black and whites that didn't make the cut on the front!

    Wait, what do you think? Border or no border?

    Love all of them but really love the braided on! T-Shirt one looks good with a border.

    I think both of your quilts are great! The first quilt looks ultra modern without the border and more "quilty" with the border. Sort of depends on the girl. I think it will be loved either way!

    Like so many quilters, at one point or another we just have to dig in and make a t-shirt quilt. I have made three and perhaps I will quit for now. Below is my link on Board where I showed my steps.

    Good luck with yours and do post so we can see it.

    A pocket for the remote. Absolutely wonderful.

    I love the gold and black, the way you set it. They both are fabulous
