T-shirt Quilts

I love the spring hear the birds singing and to see the trees with the new green leaves.

I have been working on t-shirt quilts now for a few weeks. The first one I quilted was for Betsy which she made for her mother.

I bet you can guess which pattern I used...Deb's Swirls again! It is such a pretty panto on busy quilts and it is not distracting when you quilt over a picture.

I finished the binding on Betsy's quilt while I was watching tv. Bingding and watching tv go so well together and that's why it's something I usually always do. Plus, it keeps me from reaching for a bag of chips!

This Baylor t-shirt quilt was made by Kathy for her son-in-law. Can you believe this is only the second quilt she ever pieced?

The quilt is in the Baylor colors gold sashings and the green border.

A plain stipple is one of my other favorite patterns to quilt a t-shirt quilt with.

Here is Kathy with her daughter. This was the first quilt Kathy made. You can tell Kathy and her daughter are extremely happy with the quilt.

I am working on 3 college t-shirt quilts. The first one I am working on is the UT (University of Texas) longhorn colors...burnt orange and white.

A white and bigger black border will finish the t-shirt quilt.

Happy Quilting!
