T Shirt Quilt

I've been a busy little bee...I've spent most of this weekend working on this t shirt quilt. It is for a friend of my daughters. Curtis is a Master Se argent in the Air National Guard and his job in the Guard is working with kids in a number of anti drug programs. That is how my daughter met him and became good friends with his family. I made my first t shirt quilt for the 20th anniversary of one of these programs. I used t shirts from all 20 years and it turned out great. They hung it at the conference and celebration. That is where Curtis and his wife saw the quilt and asked me to make my second t shirt quilt for their teenage daughter. Sorry I don't have pictures of these two quilts on this computer...I'll try to find them. This quilt for Curtis uses his t shirts from the Guard: And this is the blue fabric that will be the backing. Just when I think I'm getting caught up! My daughter came home with a bag full of t shirts for another quilt for Curtis' daughter. It will be from her high school t shirts and given to her for her graduation in May. Well I better get busy or I'll never be finished.

I really like the quilt you made. What a lucky person who will have it. I have made pillows from my kids' favorite shirts but never managed to get to a quilt size project.
Great job!!
