I see London, I see France

I quilted on someone’s underpants.

What? You don’t see the undies?

I love making t-shirt quilts, and quilting them is fun because they are so interesting.  One of my clients made this quilt for a family who had saved her children’s clothing.  Have you considered making one for your kiddo? 

I must say–I was a little resistant to making one and had been putting this off for years because I dreaded it.  The thought of sewing on knit terrified me.  Come to find out, though, it was not near the level of difficulty I had anticipated, and I love how mine turned out, and I love how this one turned out.  I totally think you should give it a whirl.

  1. That’s hilarious! And adorable and slightly embarassing. I’m gonna make one (some day) that is made up of onesies that belonged to my best friend’s kids. A boy one (for the two sons) and a girl one (because she’s the princess and has enough just on her own for a small quilt). And someday I might even quilt my own T-shirt quilt. Thanks for sharing this!

    This is a great arrangement of blocks! Almost done with the Boy Scout t-shirt quilt!

    Amazing! I thought I was doing good ’cause I saved my sons’ blue jeans and their sports jerseys. This puts me to shame.

  4. My client (Vickie) has made three of these for the same Mama… like in a month. AND, she pieces the backings, too. She’s pretty incredible.

    Wow! That is so much fun! And it looks huge! What a silly, funny, clever idea to use underpants! I really like the quilting.

    I just finished my t-shirt quilt. I really like how it came out.
