Finished T-Shirt Quilt

Hello!  I'm excited to FINALLY be able to show you this one.  I technically finished it last month, but I couldn't share it until it had been given to it's owner.  See, my friend wanted to surprise her son with it at a special school night, and we didn't want to risk him catching sight of it on social media.

So, here it is...Ryan's Quilt!


I created the center block, border, and corner stones to reflect Ryan's school colors.

This is the first T-shirt quilt that I've free-motion quilted, but I like the texture it brought to it.  I will likely free-motion more of them from now on.


There is something special about getting to do memory and T-shirt quilts.  They are so personal and unique.  I was honored to be able to complete this for them. <3


Thank you so much for stopping by!  Don't forget to leave a comment to say hello!

I've linked up with Finish It Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts!

  3. Great job. I've made a few. About to start one for my daughter for Christmas.
    Left over baby clothes from one she commissioned for my grandson a few years ago. I save the clothes she didn't choose. Now I am going to surprise her with it!
    I loved visiting. I am following you now. I came over from Crazy Mom.
    Have a good weekend.

    1. I'd love to see your quilt when you're done! I made one with baby clothes a couple years ago. It was a precious project, but definitely tricky with all of the different sizes and special parts on the clothes. Thank you so much for stopping by and following me. Have an awesome weekend. <3

  4. I've made a few customer tee shirt quilts and they are always fun. I should be working on one now, but laryngitis has me dragging around doing nothing constructive except blogging. ha! Love your quilt. Your quilting looks good. Be brave and quilt 'em as you make them. The fun lasts longer that way.

  5. I like to find new blogs to read and stumbled across yours today. I'm a mama of 3 too (although they're not little anymore, my youngest is a Senior this year). Enjoyed reading about this particular quilt journey. Looking forward to seeing more!
