Started in June 2021. Our son had a collection of much loved and worn band and concert tshirts. A friend suggested they could be turned into a quilt. I was initially reluctant to attempt a first quilt especially with stretchy fabric. When researching different quilting methods I discovered hand tying and decided it just might be possible.


The front of the quilt uses band and concert tshirts. Most of the pieces were machine stitched after interfacing along the seamline. The reverse is jersey leftover from sewing projects along with some tshirt pieces. The batting is either cotton or cotton and wool. The quilt is hand tied with mercerised cotton. Queen bed size.
