I hate making t-shirt quilts

Is this you? Are you a quilter who loves it when a quilt is perfectly balanced and uniform in color? You love it when the texture is the same throughout, right? You can get behind a scrappy quilt but you truly love choosing your fabrics and using only those fabrics throughout a quilt. Maybe you think t-shirts are just kind of yucky and you can't understand the lure of making a t-shirt quilt.

"Oh! You're a quilter? Can you make me a t-shirt quilt?" <-- How many times have you been asked this when someone finds out that you know how to quilt?

Maybe you're a quilter who just doesn't know how to make a t-shirt quilt or you tried to learn before and you just didn't fully absorb the process. Maybe you feel like an electric technician who has just been asked to fix a plumbing leak, sure they are both service trades but they require completely different skills. Is that how t-shirt quilts feel to you?

I have been working for MONTHS (April 2023 - February 2024) on creating a system that is extremely simple to follow so that ANY quilter can make a t-shirt quilt with confidence. My focus group is loving the system, a local store owner loves the system, and several people have asked if they can start making a t-shirt quilt after reading through the first pattern.

Hang with me, y'all. I'm working diligently behind the scenes to bring you a system that will make it painless to craft a t-shirt quilt for yourself or for others.

I can also appreciate that our hobby is expensive and sometimes you feel like you need to bring some income in from your hobby in order for you to keep playing with fabrics and patterns. One of the things I'm building is an online self-paced course to teach you how to start your own t-shirt quilting business. Hear me out, I know it's not the same as making a traditional quilt or playing with that yummy stack of fat quarters you just bought! But ...

YOU HAVE A SKILL THAT CAN ADD VALUE TO SOMEONE'S LIFE. I know, it's a big statement. And I mean every word of it.

Snuggled into Dad's t-shirts

This little guy lost his daddy unexpectedly. He couldn't sleep and missed his dad so much. His mom reached and I was able to take a stack of t-shirts and turn them into something this little dude snuggled with while he worked through the rawness of his grief. You might not believe it but even the family dog snuggled into it.

I think the most beautiful thing about making t-shirt quilts for others is that you're making them a scrapbook they can wrap up in, and when we lose someone we love the thing we crave the most is their touch. It's not the same and can never be the same, but it's a tangible reminder of love that we can wrap ourselves into.
