My Last T shirt Quilt

So I finally finished my last T-shirt quilt. This was for #1 son.  I had already finished younger son's and older daughter's T-shirt quilt.  I kept asking my son for his T-shirts and his response was, " I am still wearing them!"  I had to tell him if he wanted them in the quilt, he was going to have to give them up.  He played baseball in high school and also in college his freshman year.  I also included a few T-shirts on the back from his childhood.  I loved this pattern using jelly rolls and honey buns.  I used stabalizer to keep the T-shirts from stretching.

These are so gorgeous!!!
I have seen other t-shirt quilts before, but had no desire to own one. But, these are wonderful quilts, a story of your boys youth.
They will appreciate your gift of time and talent evident in these quilts as they grow older and colder, and begin to reflect on the happy moments of their youth.
What a mom you are, reminding me of Proverbs 31:10-31 “They wife of Noble Character”

i see I never commented back to you Thank you for those very sweet words. I did end up making another Tshirt quilt for my son-in-law. It was much easier because he did not want a lot of fabric. I of 2 1/2 inches and used that as my lattice strips. I also used solid colors of black, white, gray, blue, red, and purple. He liked it!
