Preserving memories with a T-shirt quilt


I’ve been working a lot on T-shirt quilts recently. I had a bunch of shirts from my sorority days in college that I don’t wear anymore. I didn’t want to toss them, but I also don’t have the space to store them all, so I decided re-purposing them as a quilt was the best option.


I started it a couple of months ago, but got distracted with other projects. Last night I finished the sashing on another T-shirt quilt I’m making for a client and spent the free time finishing the top of my own quilt.



It contains 16 shirts and is 63-inches square. The sashing is done in my sorority colors. I remember being surprised that I only had one T-shirt that was red when I went through them. I originally thought I was going to have a very difficult time matching reds together.


There were a couple shirts that had sayings on them that would have looked funny as a 12-inch square, but worked perfectly as sashing. I really like the way it turned out.
