Uncle M's T-Shirts
While living in North Dallas, Texas, Uncle M. (DH's twin) started to ride his bicycle in races. M. collected a few t-shirts and since I am the only quilter he knows, he asked if I would make him a t-shirt quilt. Here are the t-shirts he has collected over his years in North Dallas plus a hanky from a race (instead of a t-shirt and no, he didn't give me the hanky yet). There are 15 shirts plus a few have writings on the back...mostly sponsor information. Most of the t-shirts have never been worn and are at least an XL with a few 2XL's tossed in for good measure. His 'rider request' has gone into the queue for making this quilt. Good thing M doesn't have a deadline for me as I have never made a t-shirt quilt before :) and I think I will be on a steep learning curve. LindaJ posted a tutorial about a cool 3D looking T-Shirt quilt she just finished piecing.
