    Default Auburn T-Shirt Quilt

    I just finished this quilt for a friend who was a member of Auburn's football team and was a teammate of the young man who died in an auto accident on June 29. I'm not really his "Grandma" but that's what he calls me!

    The blocks had to be 15 inches because the logos were so big on a 3XL shirt. I tried to outline the logos rather than stitch through the vinyl letters and pictures. Needless to say, there was a LOT of twisting and turning on my Janome 6600. I was glad of the 9 inch throat space! It hangs down about six inches on either side of a queen bed, so it is rather big and heavy.

    Awesome!! I have loved watching Auburn football for the past four years while my son was there. He was in the band all four years and loved it! He has a gazillion tshirts so I may need to swipe your idea :-)

    I was also in the Auburn marching band and was a majorette for two years. But -- that was over 50 years and 50 pounds ago!
    I'm sure your son enjoyed his time there -- it was a wonderful experience for me.

    Be sure to make a shirt quilt for him -- it will be treasured forever!
