I'm sure you're here expecting to see a Five Friday Favorites post - there'll be one next Friday I promise!
I know I have already shared my two T-Shirt Quilt designs (In Tune and Road Trip-click here to see) from the book Terrific T-Shirt Quilts. But today I wanted to show you some of the other quilts from the book!
This is one of my favorites from the book - it's called "Too Precious to Pitch" (designed by Krista Moser) It's a baby sized quilt (38"x 44") and is a great way to use (and remember) those favorite outfits from your little ones! I only kept one or two favorites from all of my boys' baby clothes because I didn't know what I would ever do with them. But now I'm wishing I would have kept more so I could make it into a sweet little quilt.
This quilt is also a favorite of mine. This one is called "Go Zags" (designed by Janet Nesbitt) and I love it because I grew up in Spokane Washington - home of the Gonzaga Bulldogs. This quilt is a great way to show your team spirit. Gather your sports fan tees and surround them with your school colors!
I know June is the month for graduations - both high schools and colleges. How fun to give a T-Shirt quilt as a gift? This quilt is called "Got Spirit" (designed by Penny Barnes) I love how this quilt doesn't require dozens and dozens of tees - she uses the open space to have the school's initials added into the quilting. Can you see it? So clever!
Like I mentioned in my last post, this book is a great resource if you're considering making your own T-Shirt quilt. The first chapters are filled with helpful information about choosing a layout, cutting and stabilizing the shirts, and how to work with tricky fabrics (mesh, sweatshirt, etc.) You can find the book here on the Martingale site, and I have a few copies left here in my shop.
Have a great weekend and happy sewing!
