T-shirt quilt---finally


Ta-da!!! After 8 years of saving t-shirts and 2 years of cutting, arranging, and sewing, it is finally done! The perfect football watching blanket!

Things I love:

1) Awesome fabric. The lady at the store tried to deter me but I don’t think it takes away from the shirts at all!


2) Minky fabric on the back. So perfect for the staying warm while watching football in the fall!


3) The clean look of the shirts and color coordination without looking like it was just thrown together. A little known fact--- I chose a college based on the fact that it matched my high school colors and thus would make a great t-shirt quilt. Ditto for the job and its colors.

No tutorial on this one but in case you are wondering, the squares are 12 inches and it comfortably fits on a twin size bed and fits even better on a couch!

Join  us Saturdays at for the weekend wrap up         party! HookingupwithHoH


  1. You did a wonderful job! I love the fabric . . . it doesn't distract at all!

  2. I am so glad I found you via the Weekend Wrap Up. I am working on a t-shirt quilt now, I mean this weekend, I really need some motivation for my project and you have delivered. Thank you!

  3. This is fabulous! Saw you @ Tatertots and Jello... and I've always wanted to turn my t-shirts into a quilt! I'm so impressed that you actually did it!! :]

  4. This turned out wonderfully - my cousin just gave me a bag filled with tshirts to make her a quilt for christmas before she heads off to college. Thanks for sharing yours - you did a great job!

  5. THe quilt turned out beautifully! My SIL made one just like it for my FIL with all of his race shirts. I need to do something like this with my hubby's old baseball shirts!

    Thanks for linking up to Show and Tell Saturday!!
