Theatre Ts

T-Shirt Quilt Close Up

This t-shirt quilt is my final finish of the year. This is actually the first t-shirt quilt top that I made, which I put together my freshmen year of college. At the time I didn't have any knowledge of machine quilting or the necessary tools to machine quilt with, so I knew I wouldn't be able to finish the quilt for a good while. Now in my charge to finish finish finish I have finally completed it.

T-shirt Quilt

These are my theatre t-shirts from junior high and high school. I have had lots of different creative pursuits at different times in my life, and theatre was a very important one to me during that time of my life, including both acting and working behind the scenes. I haven't been involved in any theatre related activities for a long time, but I knew I would never be able to get rid of the t-shirts, so now I never have to. I'm happy with how it came out.

T-Shirt Quilt

I finished seven quilts in 2008, six in the final 2.5 months of the year. Not bad, all things considered!!

What a wonderful quilt! I have a bunch of theater t-shirts for one of my daughters, but don't know if there are enough for a quilt. But what a great way to remember!
Happy New Year -- may 2009 also give you many good things to look back on in the years to come.
