Band T-Shirt Quilt

Emma's Band Quilt

This quilt is made up of only concert t-shirts.  Many of the panels where very long, so long in fact that I had to improvise. Usually I cut each shirt  block 15 inch square, but the longer shirts blocks ran 15 by 18.  I wanted to keep the blocks even, so I cut out smaller 3 by 15 inch blocks.  In those blocks I used "band / concert" themed designs.

Musical Notes
Band Equipment

Music Notes 



Special care also had to be made with the signatures.  Some were on the back of the shirts or on the side.  With those signatures I cut them out and appliqued them to front of the blocks. 

The border design was made up of band equipment.
