T-Shirt Quilt

Ok friends, I know I've been behind in my posting lately, but I promise I have a good excuse. I've been working on a SECRET PROJECT. I've been making my husband a quilt out of all of his old T-shirts. Today is his birthday so I am finally able to share this project with you all. It's not done yet, but I wrapped up what I had and gave it to him anyway. It's been nearly impossible to find time to work on it when 1) my husband wasn't home and 2) the kids were both asleep. Now I'll be able to work on it freely so hopefully I'll have it done in no time. Here's what my husband opened for his birthday this morning:

Once I have it completed, I'll post the tutorial so you can make your very own T-shirt quilt. It's a great way to recycle all those old shirts that don't fit anymore or have been ruined by stains, holes, bleach, etc...This would also be a really cute thing to make out of your kid's clothes that they've outgrown but that have such wonderful memories, you can't bear to part with them.


  1. That is awesome! I have so many t-shirt laying around. SOmeday I'll make a quilt!

  2. Awesome job! I don't know how you do it all!

  3. I have been collecting t-shirts in hopes of making a quilt someday! Yours turned out great!


I LOVE to hear from you guys! You all are the GREATEST! (And I love to reply to comments so make sure you have an email address attached to your Blogger Profile!)
