Finish It Up Friday ~ T-Shirt Quilt

I mentioned before that I had a secret project I was working on. Now that this quilt has been gifted, I can share it with you. My pastor’s wife asked me to make this for our pastor. Our church uses t shirts to identify our volunteers to our visitors. She brought over one of each T-shirt we have used over the last five years we’ve been in existence.

I decided to embroider some of our core values/beliefs on blocks cut from the backs of the shirts as well.

Here is a look at the back and binding.

This is the first T-shirt quilt I have quilted on my long arm. I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. And I think he liked it!

Have a great day!

    This is a beautiful gift for your pastor. Your church reminds me of mine, Victory Life Church. We have lots of shirts too and I’ve made a tshirt quilt for our children’s church leader. Yours is beautiful!

  4. Not only a fun t-shirt quilt, but the words are so inspiring. It will be well used, I think, by the look on his face. Great job, Katy! If we’re ever in your neck of the woods, I’d enjoy visiting your church. Looks like a great place!
