Something is done!

Well, parts are done.  The tshirt quilt top is completed.
It features shirts from each of the 3 years my daughter was in Color Guard as well as the shirts from the Texas state championships (that they won).
The back is done too!  It features the back of one shirt from each year capturing the names of her team mates as well as from the state shirts, showing the schools that also competed at that level.

I was a little tentative about making this.  I have never made a tshirt quilt before, but used the tutorial at Missouri Quilt Co and I am happy with the results.  
The hardest part was choosing the coordinating fabrics since I had no control over the colors in the tshirts, and there were a couple very strong colors, but I think everything came together well. 
I am sharing at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, something I have not been able to do in some time, since I have not done anything!


  1. That is very cool, Diane! It looks wonderful, and I'm sure it will be a keepsake for your daughter to look back on and remember her fun color guard days.

  2. That is awesome, Diane! Your daughter must love it! Whoop whoop for you!!
