Beautiful T-Shirt Quilt

My friend Sharon Dixon of Katy Tshirt Quilts does longarm machine quilting for customers, and the latest addition to her business is making quilts from her customers' t-shirts that they bring her. Most customers seem to want simple blocks and sashings (see her website for examples), but this one (for the Awty School) is a bit more complex, with its compensating blocks. I just love what she did with it, and asked her permission to show it here ...

Beautifully constructed, and beautifully quilted. Sharon is not only a dear friend, but also one of the best and most dedicated quilters I know. Highly recommended ... tell her I sent you!


  1. Beautiful quilts! I took the liberty of adding to my niche directory.

  2. What a neat t-shirt setting. Is the setting original? Is there a place to see the photo enlarged? I really like it.

  3. Sandy, I think I had the image size too large before ... I've replaced it now and you should be able to click on it to see it better. I believe the setting is original, but you'd have to ask Sharon ... also, you might want to check her website for more or better pictures ... Thanks for Commenting!

  4. What a great way to do a t-shirt quilt! So different than the usual way they are done.
