Finish It Up Wednesday ~ T-Shirt Quilt

One of our pastors at church is leaving to plant a new church back in his home state of Texas.

So I made this quilt as a going away gift. At our church, if you are serving in any area on a Sunday, you wear a Lifechurch t- shirt. It helps identify at a glance to our visitors who is a vetted church worker. We get new shirts a couple times a year at least. So I gathered some shirts and made a quilt!

The back is actually a light gray.

I like to use a neutral solid for sashing and borders on t-shirt quilts.

Yes, he liked it!

Sorry for the reverses photos, I took them from a Facebook Live video feed.

We will miss him and his wife, but we send our love and support with them.

Have a great day!

  4. What a great gift! I enjoyed reading the shirts on the quilt. It’s always hard to see people from our church families leave, but you are sending them off with a quilty hug. Nicely done, Katy!
