Terrific T-Shirt Quilts

So thrilled to have received copies of this new publication for Martingale called Terrific T-Shirt Quilts.

I was pretty excited to spot the book at the Bear Patch Quilting in White Bear Lake, Mn.

Even more thrilled that my design "Got Spirit" appears beginning on page 21!  I used t-shirts from Iowa State University and created a design that formed the letter "I".   That design gave me some great negative space on both sides to do some fun quilting.  I traced out the letters "I S U" and added a bit of wool batting underneath before quilting to allow them to stand out amidst the quilting.

I also added some design inspiration using other letters that might represent your school too!  There's great information for you in prepping those t-shirts if you'd like to make a quilt of your own!
Here's a sneak peek at a few other t-shirt quilts you'll find in the book.

Once again, I'm giving away a copy of this book and I'll be choosing a winner from comments left here on the blog.  


  1. Penny again you have made a great quilt. I like the raised letters especially.

  2. Great ideas! I even like the ISU quilt. Wink wink. Keep 'em coming!

  3. Looks like a great book for some different ideas for tee shirt quilts. I have a pile of tee shirts waiting for some inspiration.
