Mary Ann’s t-shirt quilt!

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
