T-shirt Quilts and Bags

 I've been working on so many t-shirt quilts and tops for bags. This is the Sander's quilt I made. I've used the leftover t-shirt logos and put them in the border. This is around a queen sized quilt.
 This is a king sized t-shirt quilt I made for Wendy. I did the same thing and used some of the smaller logos in the border.
 Many of the t-shirts were hand decorated by her and her two boys like this Surf's Up t-shirt.
 Here's another t-shirt quilt I quilted with painted white t-shirts. This quilt was a team effort made by many of  the teachers and personnel of a school for a retiring principal.
 I quilted this quilt for Kayla.
 The last few t-shirt quilts I quilted are from Marjie. This is her son's quilt.
These are t-shirts I quilted for Marjie who so cleverly made them into a duffel bag! 
 Here's some more tops she will transform into bags.
 I really like the color scheme of this soon to be bag.
 Happy Quilting,

Wow..those quilts are amazing. I just started to save t'shirts for my kids...I didn't ever think of it before and regret it now. But I'm inspired! =0P

Thanks for sharing these. I have a box of nostalgic tees from my youngest son that I am to make into a quilt some day. It's nice to be inspired.

Millie,these are the best t-shirt quilts I've ever seen. Great design, balance of color, crisp points, excellent quilting, and your ability to capture special memories from t-shirts. Great job.

Ohh goodnes me Millie that is a lot of tshirts...I don't think I have one of my own with a print on it lol I guess mine would be pretty
YOU made them look pretty interesting

Wendy said...

Millie, your quilting is amazing!! I think I've decided that when I get my Sunkissed quilt done, I'm going to beg, borrow and steal ... okay, not steal ... but you get the idea ;) to see if I can send the quilt to you for your special touch. New beginnings for me deserve the beauty you create!!

Great t-shirt quilts. I know you posted these some time ago but I have enjoyed looking through your blog. Could you tell me the name of the panto design you used on the final picture? It's like stipple going up and down in a V shape. Thanks so much for sharing.
