Here is a t-shirt quilt that will be auctioned off for the benefit of a local Catholic elementary school. My dear friends belong to this parish and put together a “Mommy & Me” basket with some of my Etsy items (aprons, headbands and bandana bands.) I hope to get a picture to share. I also made a quilt using t-shirts and sweatshirts and old uniforms. They did not have a wide variety of shirts available, so I used some plain squares. To jazz it up a bit, I used a celestial fabric for the sashing. It captures the blue, gold and black of the quilt squares. The quilt has a fuzzy fleece backing – perfect for a young girl or boy to snuggle under.
I have made all but one of my nieces and nephews a quilt when they graduated from high school. It makes a nice memory gift, but also a practical item they can take to college. I have made a number of custom quilts for friends and family and I’ve contemplated adding a custom quilt to my Etsy shop. We’ll see. Right now I enjoy making them because each one is unique and the recipients are usually thrilled to receive them.
I hope you all have a great weekend!
