I was very excited to create my first Custom T Shirt Memory Quilt for a customer via my website. This is a big step for me to have a customer have the confidence to purchase via my website rather than my Etsy shop.
I worked with the customer to select the colors for this blanket which is made using her husband's shirts.
Because it has a lot of shirts filled with writing, she wanted to keep the contrast simple. So we selected a medium grey cotton and a red fleece backing - perfect Ohio State colors!
This was my first time using a solid. I like how it defines the shirts, although I think it may show wrinkles a bit more than a patterned fabric.
My friend wrote a touching post on cleaning out her son's closet. His shirts are sitting in the studio waiting to be created into a practical blanket filled with memories!
