Notre Dame-Michigan Game Day {T-shirt Quilt}


I was commissioned to make a T-shirt Quilt that include only Notre Dame vs Michigan Game T-shirts.  I have to admit, this Marquette University alum girl twinged just a tad, but I powered through!  She requested a queen and with only about enough t-shirt logos to make 14 blocks, I knew I had to put my thinking cap on.

My original mockup

 I remembered that a friend had asked me to work up an estimate for a simple Notre Dame logo and I worked the math to fit it in the center for this one.
I surrounded it by the t-shirt blocks and then added a gold border to frame it all.  


The fabric choices are very mottled solids gave the quilt some depth.



And, as always, I back my t-shirt quilts with minky, this one was Shannon Fabrics Navy.  Quilted it on Ole Besty Longarm with a large meandering and bound it with the gold fabric by Moda to mimic a second "frame".



It was a big hit for Christmas!

  1. Tommy has an assortment of Lacoste Polo shirts that he has worn for quite a long while without the texture looking worn or the shadings getting blurred. At a sensible value, he suggests Lacoste Polo shirts and for outside headwear, Lacoste caps. hills cop letterman jacket
