Quilt With Us

Late last summer I posted a question about using football jerseys in a quilt.  Oh, how I did not want to use them in a quilt, put my niece and sister kept telling me I could do it.  What an easy target I was.  I finished that darn quilt a few weeks ago, and had the chance to deliver it this past weekend, at a family wedding.  The quilt looks so simple that I am sure they will never understand what went into making it.  Backing the mesh fabrics, trying to stitch anywhere near the rubbery lettering, getting the foot caught in the holes of the mesh, etc.  I guess all that matter is that it is finished, and they are happy with the results.

My sister-in-law wanted me to make a t-shirt quilt for her son out of the souvenir sky-diving t-shirts he'd collected from various places he'd dived.  I got her a book on how to do it herself, and a non-stick pressing sheet, plus a roll of the iron-on stabilizer.  So far as I know, Andy still doesn't have his sky-diving t-shirt quilt.

Nice job!  I have made t-shirt quilts but not one out of jerseys.  I understand the problems and do not wish to tackle such a project.

Kudos to you for tackling this project!  It turned out nicely.

Beautiful job you did on it.  I have never had a desire to do a t-shirt quilt. Thank goodness by the sound of those who have. lol

It looks wonderful! Should we all send him a note explaining how difficult this project had to have been? Nah, just let him enjoy it!

Looks great and cute 55. Simple does not always equal time.

Great job. I've made three and no more. You're right...they can not appreciate what it takes to do one.

Thanks, girls...only other quilters would understand.

It looks great!  I'm sure they're happy with it; I certainly would be.  I've made one t-shirt quilt and that was the one and only!  But I didn't have to deal with mesh jersey - just regular t-shirt fabric (which I backed with stabilizer) so you had much more of a challenge and you did a wonderful job!

That turned out great Barb.  I know what you mean about making quilts out of less than desirable fabrics.  I have made 2 t-shirt quilts & that was enough for me.
