I have been swimming in tshirt quilts lately - as in I have done 8 this month. That is a lot of tshirt quilts!
I have definitely learned a lot of them experience.
Although t-shirt quilts aren't my favorite to quilt - I do love the idea behind them. I had a cute client make 6 quilts....YES 6 for her daughers drill team friends. I think she may have mentioned these were her first quilts too - so I'm so impressed she went for it! They were so cute!
They all looked similar to this one above. I love the bright blue and orange colors - of course the school colors...
She chose the Posies 2 pattern for all the quilts which I thought looked so cute.
On the back she used leftover strips so its like a strip quilt and is a quilt all on it own. Looked great.

These quilts took me awhile to get through - but so much fun. I kept imagining the girls getting their quilts and what a treasure it would be for then. Wish I could be there to see their expressions.
This next quilt is another local t-shirt quilt for her daughter who graduated. Again, fun colors staying in the school theme.
This quilt was a dream to quilt. Her sewing was perfect - which is hard on a t-shirt quilt! She chose the Geometric quilting pattern, which I hadn't used so I was so excited to try.
I love how it turned out, especially on the minky back. This is a fun pattern. Would be great for a boy and for a more modern quilt look. This quilted up perfectly and was a fairly fast pattern. I love how it turned out!
Needless to say - I have been trying to get caught up on my quilting - and not a lot of sewing is getting done. I have 2 more swoon blocks in the works, but nothing to show as of yet. Clearly my project for February is not going to get completed. Hopefully I can get it done the first week or two in March. I've been dying to start some new projects but keep telling myself I have to finish my swoon one first!
