Sports theme t-shirt quilt

sports t-shirt quilt close-upA customer commissioned this 3 x 4 traditional grid  t-shirt quilt as a wedding present for her son. The t-shirts chronicle his participation in various sports activities from middle school through early adulthood, as well as t-shirts that hold special meaning for him and his new bride’s family. Sixteen shirts were actually used in this quilt, with patches and logos included as a part of the 12 blocks.  The quilt was ditch quilted along the sashing and each block individually quilted around the logos. My customer specifically requested a “drapey” quilt, so the interior block quilting is deliberately kept to a minimum since dense quilting results in a stiffer quilt.  She was so happy with the finished product.
