Amazing T/Shirt Quilt.

Hello regular readers and all who may call in,
 I have an amazing quilt top for you to see especially those of you who are old Rock n  Roll music fans or since the 60's Rock group fans.
This quilt  top is made from T/shirts collected from live music concerts and festivals and will be a great memory quilt .
I am sure you will remember some of the names on the shirt fronts.

Our class teacher Lee has pierced together these t/shirts and they look amazing, perfectly finished after backing each block  so as the t/shirt fabric doesn't stretch out of shape. I am sure the recipient will be delighted when he receives the finished quilt.
We are so lucky to have Lee as a friend and quilting teacher. I think she certainly has heaps of patience as she passes on her knowledge and skills to us all.

Lee ,Sue and Vicki, friends  from my quilting class are sorting  fabric from everyone to make a charity quilt as we are all contributing 3 blocks each.

One of my three blocks.

I am haveing a sewing room take over in my house at the moment by my Grandson who is liveing with us from the country while he waits for his Army papers to join the Australian Defence Force.

Binding my grandaughters quilt . Should have it finished this week.

Our Autumn weather has been beautiful days with temperatures of 26C so with my hubby and grandson we are makeing sure to enjoy them by spending time at the beach, lunching and whale watching as only a few more days and it is winter!! .

Happy sewing week everyone.

Jen, Love the rock 'n roll quilt. It is amazing. Your granddaughters quilt looks beautiful. We have had lovely warm autumn days too lately. About to head north for a month, so it might be nice and hot up there! Love the poster at the end of your post! Can relate

Thank you Jen :) the tshirt quilt is an example of patience and experienced construction - did not know t-shirts could end up as actual, lovely quilt blocks -
hurrah for the charity quilt blocks too!
thank you to your grandson for his prospective service in the Australian Defence Forces - we all benefit from his service - please thank him :)

xoxo jen

Lovely quilt blocks, it is a good way to make a charity quilt.

I'm always amazed at how generous quilters are with their time. Collaborating on charity quilts for auction or donating is not unusual in this community.
I love the way the t-shirt quilt will keep memories close by the recipient. You can't wear those t-shirts forever, but you can snuggle up beneath a quilt of them!
