Photo Gallery - 2011 T-Shirt Quilts

 

Type of quilt Description Photo of entire quilt Close up of the quilting

high school band quilt

This quilt is a 3x4 (16"blocks) quilt with sashing.  The sashing clearly defines each t-shirt.

The black blocks are the focal point and properly displayed in the center of the quilt.

This t-shirt quilting pattern is

"squibbles".  It is a custom quilting design in each square.

 

high school graduation quilt

 

This quilt is a 4x5 (16" blocks) quilt with no sashing,

 and 5 inch border.

  • With no sashing, it gives the quilt an overall "patchwork" look.

  • Check out the embroidery name block in the center.

  • Also check out the two blocks on beige muslin fabric.  At the time of his graduation party, we had two pieces of muslin fabric out and people signed their names on the fabric.  Then I washed it and incorporated it into his quilt.

This is a pantograph pattern called "Flags1"

Because there is no sashing, it looks much better to do an allover or pantograph quilting (rather than one design per square)

college athletics quilt

This quilt is a 3x3 (16" blocks) with sashing.

Note the pocket.

This t-shirt quilting pattern is

"emblem".  It is a custom quilting design in each square.

 

college community quilt

This quilt is a 3x3 (16" blocks) quilt with no sashing.

There were a lot of colors in these shirts.  So by adding the "specialty" blocks (or the smaller blocks around the bigger block), it brings in all the colors throughout the quilt.

This t-shirt quilting pattern is

"flames".  It is a custom quilting design in each square.

 

rock concert quilt

This is a 3x4 (16" blocks) quilt with sashing. 

Since Bon Jovi was our client's favorite, he was featured as the center block, on both the front and back.  This quilt turned out to be reversible.

This t-shirt quilting pattern is

"flames".  It is a custom quilting design in each square.

 

Here's a close-up of what the back looks like

football display quilt

This is a 3x3 (16" blocks) quilt with sashing.  The client wanted to be able to display this in his son's room.  So we added a hanging sleeve on the back.  We also did 2 custom quilting designs for this quilt.

 

You'll notice the specialty embroidery block in the middle.  This had the boy's name and his football number.

Back of the quilt:

custom design 1 - 4 footballs

 

custom design 2 - helmet & 4 footballs

girl's middle school memory quilt This is a 4x6 (12" blocks) quilt with sashing.  This was a quilt made for a gal who is now in high school.  These were some of her favorite shirts from middle school and earlier. 

Since the shirts were smaller, they were all made into 12 inch squares.  Notice how we did the diagonal color scheme, which was necessary since there were so many different colored shirts.  Laying it out in this way, made the quilt cohesive.

This is a pantograph pattern called "Pentas".  Since there were 24 squares and they were only 12 inches, custom quilting in each square was not feasible.  So we chose an allover pattern with a variegated thread, which went very well with the multi-colored theme of the quilt.

college memory quilt This is a 3x3 (16" blocks) quilt with sashing.

This two t-shirts were quilted with a pattern called "emblem".  It is a custom quilting design in each square.

The pattern looks like rockets, which is perfect for the University of Toledo.

 

Here's what the quilting looks like on the back of the quilt

college memory quilt  

This is a 3x4 (16" blocks) quilt with sashing.  This one was a little more complicated than most, because of the number of blocks that were made up of multiple shirts.

This was a custom drawn quilting design.  It was a winding, feathery design, but we integrated soccer and basketballs into it.

 

University of Toledo Rocky shirt This is a quilt we made up for the University of Toledo.  The purpose was to come up with a way to sell t-shirts that weren't selling well.  So we came up with making them into a quilt. This is a close-up of the quilting.  The back was actually navy blue, but for some reason my picture didn't come out well.  But it does show up the quilting design very well.
