I was very excited to create my first Custom T Shirt Memory Quilt for a customer via my website. This is a big step for me to have a customer have the confidence to purchase via my website rather than my Etsy shop.
I worked with the customer to select the colors for this blanket which is made using her husband’s shirts.
Because it has a lot of shirts filled with writing, she wanted to keep the contrast simple. So we selected a medium grey cotton and a red fleece backing – perfect Ohio State colors!
This was my first time using a solid. I like how it defines the shirts, although I think it may show wrinkles a bit more than a patterned fabric.
My friend wrote a touching post on cleaning out her son’s closet. His shirts are sitting in the studio waiting to be created into a practical blanket filled with memories!
How cool! I would just love to make a tee shirt quilt – but the quilt I began when my 22 year old was a baby is still calling my name. lol.
BTW, have you ever read the blog, Noodlehead? She just featured the most beautiful quilt that she made for her mom. You’d love it.
