“I Love New York” T-shirt Quilt


Here’s a quilt to commemorate a fabulous weekend in New York City.

I was originally going to quilt this using invisible thread. As I said yesterday, this thread can be fickle. Despite using it in a previous T-shirt quilt earlier that day, I could not get the tension adjusted perfectly. That left me with the challenge of choosing a thread color. I decided to use purple — it blended in with the background and provided a nice contrast to 5 of the 6 T-shirt panels. My other option was to use a color that contrasted all of the T-shirts, such as lime green or bright pink.

I quilted the blocks using simple meandering and did loops in the sashing.

The fabric is called “Times Square” and is available at City Quilter in New York City.
