Linda’s T-shirt quilt

Linda's T-Shirt Quilt, quilted by Angela HuffmanI find it funny that the past three quilts I’ve done are all for different Lindas! This one is Linda S’s t-shirt quilt.

I’ve never seen a t-shirt quilt like this before- it is so original. She put the background fabric together then appliqued the t-shirt panels on the top. The edges are trimmed out in black bias. Don’t you love how much energy the t-shirt blocks have scattered at different angles like that?

Linda's T-Shirt Quilt, quilted by Angela Huffman

This quilt is for an Aunt in her family and each shirt is from a niece or nephew. Take a look at how she put the name of each child on their representative t-shirt. Really original idea, Linda!

Linda asked me not to do any quilting on the shirts themselves. For this background I did a double marble freehand design to bring out the dot motif. It is a fun, high energy quilt that will be a cherished gift.
