A Finished T-Shirt Quilt & TGIFF

Hello and welcome to TGIFF!!  I'm so glad you're here today, and I'm so happy to share a giant of a finish...a Queen-sized T-shirt quilt!


I've been really busy this season with craft shows and t-shirt quilts for Christmas, but I wanted to specifically share this one because it has a special element that was new to me.

If you look closely, you will see a 3x4 large block of designs in the center.  This section started off as a t-shirt blanket that was created by my client.  She asked if I could "work it in", so I used it as the center of the quilt, then designed the rest of the shirts around it.

I won't act like it was really easy, because, in fact, it was challenging to work with someone else's pieces alongside my own, especially with different sewing styles and abilities.  However, I'm really pleased with the results, and so is she...so it's a win-win!


I finished it all off with meandering quilting with black thread to blend in with the all the dark shirts, black sashing, and backing fabric.

Quilting it on my little singer was definitely akin to wrestling an alligator!


Have you ever incorporated someone else's work into your own?  I'd love to hear about it!


Now it's your turn to share!  Add the link your post (not your blog home, please) below, link back here in your post, and be sure visit a few other links to share the love. <3

  2. Beautiful work! I once did a traveling round robin quilt, so thethere were a bunch of us working on the same quilts. Hmmm... mine still isn't finished. I should dig that out and finish it! Thanks for hosting this week :)

  3. It looks great. It is difficult to work around sewing by others. I liken it to formatting and updating a Word document that someone else created. Congrats on the finish.

  6. With leading, the goal is to create enough space between the lines of text so they fit nicely together and don't interfere with one another, without creating so much space that they look artificial or become difficult to read. New t shirt styles
