From time to time, I take on commissions for custom memory quilts. Most recently, I created this t-shirt quilt for my cousin who is an avid runner. This large throw (65" x 65") features many of the t-shirts she collected over the years from running clubs and track and field events.
Since the t-shirts are quite busy on their own, I opted not to add any additional fabrics to the quilt's top. Instead, I stabilized the t-shirts, cut them into squares, arranged them in a simple 5 x 5 grid.
I did, however, opt for a stripy binding with a pop of coral, to add my voice to the quilt. I pieced together a back from a navy blue solid and a Japanese elephant print.
