These two new fabrics, one think is an Amy Butler fabric are two that have gone into a recent commission of T-shirt quilts. A friend of mine has two daughters who have been involved with many community events throughout there lives so far and Mom wanted T-shirt quilts made for both of them.
The fact is that most of T-shirts were many years old, some had memorable stains on them and so forth.
I decide what the plan for each new T-shirt quilt will be is to know something about the person the quilt will ultimately go to and what is the main focus of their lives. One of these quilts is going to a home in the famous ski resort of Whistler, BC.
The backing fabric for this quilt is recycled sheets from their childhood. Wow, that is great recycling!
This is what the finished quilt looks like. I love to incorporate similar colored fabric with newly purchased fabric and the quilts just glow!
