Colleen is the third of three daughters. I had them all in school, and now I have made quilts for all of them. Colleen chose the colors, and I thought the gray sashings were going to be dull, so I added a bunch of quilting to liven it up. I decided the gray look great as the shirts show up great. The backing is turquoise. Finished size is 71 x 94. There were a lot of large designs, so this one ended up a little longer than normal for a twin quilt.

Trenee wanted a t-shirt quilt without sashing - just shirts. This allowed for almost double the usual number of shirts I put on a quilt this size (queen - 94x108). So it's really heavy because there are 58 shirt pieces in it. She also had the great idea to turn the shirts on the sides side-ways so that when it's on the bed they will be straight up - an idea I will definitely offer again. Quilting is a large meander. Backing is a bright blue.
