Mary Ann’s t-shirt quilt!
Mary Ann made this for her daughter for Christmas. I think this is one of my most favorite t-shirt quilts. The reason being, the light grey sashing. It frames the shirts nicely, without competing with the colors in the shirts.
I made a t-shirt quilt in the spring for a client, and if your interested in some tips, read this post: https://www.quiltingit.com/blog/2018/3/26/t-shirt-quilt-a-first-for-me?rq=T-shirt
I used white Perma Core A&E 30 tex thread, and my favorite Winline 8020 cotton/poly blend batting.
When Mary Ann was showing me the quilt, I knew exactly the design I wanted to quilt on it. My Beaded Clam Take 2. Mary Ann’s daughter played tennis, and I told her the design reminds me of a tennis ball bouncing. So, it’s a hint of tennis without being so literal. I think it looks awesome quilted on this quilt. Beaded Clam Take 2 is available in my shop. The original Beaded Clam design needs to be offset every other row, Beaded Clam Take 2 doesn’t. It’s available in my shop, in several different digital formats. Go to: https://www.quiltingit.com/shop/beaded-clam-take-2
See that tennis ball bouncing???
Mary Ann did pretty great for this only being her second quilt.
Loving all this beautiful texture!
Hope that you’re having a great holiday season!!!
