Last fall when I was at my sister, Ruth's, home in California, we cut apart her t-shirts to make a quilt. I finally got it together in May and quilted in June. Sent it off to her and now I can post a picture since she has received it.  Ruth had three or four large tubs of t-shirts collected around the world as she traveled.  When she was working at the lumber mill she wore a different one everyday for three months and then gave up.  There was a lot of shirts.  But we narrowed it down to places she had been or worked at.  I put a nautical flannel back on it so it will be comfy in the winter to cozy up in.

What sweet memories for Ruth. Did you quilt through the t-shirts, or around them. Curious minds want to know how to do it, LOL! I love flannel backing on a quilt. Your are a good sister.

Thanks Pat she loved it.
I quilted the t-shirts just around some of the raised words, different in each block, just to hold them to the backing tightly.
