T-shirt quilts

I always have a lot of fun making t-shirt quilts. T-shirt quilts are very popular, especially this time of the year when students are going to college. Each t-shirt quilt has its own personality.
This is a t-shirt quilt I made for Nijia.
We decided on a small teal border followed by a black and teal patchwork print for the outside border, binding and backing. I used a heart and swirl quilting pattern in teal colored thread.
Rhonda's t-shirt quilt was quilted with swirls and it is my favorite pattern for t-shirt quilts.
Sally's t-shirt quilt was quilted with the same swirl pattern called "Deb's Swirls".
Pieced backing.
This is a very heavy t-shirt quilt which I quilted with a stipple.
 Grey border with music  print for the outside border.
 This is why the quilt is very heavy and so durable, the backing is a heavy weight denim fabric.
Hope you all will have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by,
Millie

Those are all treasures! I love the swirl quilting you do on them. What product do you use to stabilize the t-shirts?
