    Roseanne – so excited to see the finished quilt! Fabulous! I love orange and black, so this is right up my alley even though I have never been on a motorcycle!

    Wow, good for you! That was a big, hard, unwieldy project that turned out absolutely stunning. What a lucky man he is!

    The quilt is amazing. Turned out so well. He will love it I bet. I can appreciate how heavy it was to put through the sewing machine to cross hatch. I am doing a slightly smaller one (cross hatch) with a fleece on the back and I am surprised at how heavy it is to do. Oh well, all for love! Great finish.

    When I get home I have to decide if I am facing or binding my July OMG. The quilting is done, I just need to see if they fabric I bought here in Florida is the right color for the binding. If not, I will just face it with the backing fabric. Glad you got the Harley quilt done!!

    Whew! Absolutely amazing. Every thing about this is absolutely amazing! I made a few tshirt quilts before I knew any better (I had no idea that interfacing existed never mind using it to stabilize the shirts, and so to this day I just get a bit queasy just at the mention of a Tshirt quilt!) You totally knocked this out of the park. Too bad you couldn’t get a picture with a badass Hog :0) Quick question: How did you press the seams open and not scorch the interfacing? Thanks for the share – it really is amazing!

  9. Hi Roseanne!
    Thank you SEW much for your detailed tutorial of the making of the Harley quilt. I have a bag of t-shirts that I need to make into a quilt … your tutorial is inspiring! Maybe, just maybe, I’ll get the quilt started!
    Happy Quilting! 🙂

  10. Roseanne, that is a striking T-shirt quilt! The color contrast are so bold! Someone is going to love this quilt!

    Congratulations on meeting the OMG for July. This is one awesome quilt and I’m sure Tim will love it. I think it deserves some kind of a reward…ice cream, a trip to a quilt store, a dip in the pool. You name it!

    So awesome! I have made 1 tshirt quilt and not sure if or when I will make another. I sewed mine very similar to the way you described yours, although I followed a pattern. Some of my shirts were so small, I had to piece 2 of them together for a block. Your Harley Davidson quilt is wonderful!

  13. Shannon Fleming says:

    That looks wonderful! I know how much work a t-shirt quilt can be. Lots of love in this one.

  14. Wow, what a quilt!!! The size and logistics! It came out beautiful! Kudos for quilting it on your home machine, crosshatching, no less! Interesting to read that June Taylor has interfacing specifically for t-shirts.

  15. T-shirt quilts are one of those types of quilts that non-quilters come up to us quilters and say casually, ‘hey I have these t-shirts…could you…”
    And in reality they are one of the hardest to execute…this one has got to be the biggest success story on the art of the entire process of creating a quilt from t-shirts I’ve ever seen. From the prep of the shirts to the size of the blocks – fast forward to the quilting for goodness’ sake!
    Very impressive and labor intensive – I’m thinking this was a labor of love and not to be done again anytime soon?!
    Brava, girls!

  16. Yay! You got it done, and it looks great! On our recent Door County trip, we could’ve chosen to stay in the Harley Davidson room. We should’ve, just to tip a nod to your working on this quilt. Love the Harley museum in Milwaukee. I’ll send you a picture via email that you’ll get a kick out of.

  17. WOW — this quilt is definitely a masterpiece! I’m sure Tim & Deena will treasure this beauty for years to come!

    This is such an awesome quilt. I have been asked to make a T shirt quilt in the future so if I need help I’m coming to you!

  19. Vicki in MN says:

    I seriously can’t believe you quilted that on your DSM, very nicely done and her DH will love it. Ahhhh, I hear your sign of relief!

  20. This is a great quilt. The hatching is fun and so right about it getting easier as you go. I do have one in progress but no plans to get back to it – number one’s (only really) t-shirts.

  21. Wow, I’ve never tackled a t-shirt quilt. (Honestly, cutting into someone’s cherished tees seems stressful to me.) This one turned out brilliantly, and I’m impressed that you quilted it yourself because, let’s face it, it was a beast!

  22. How wonderful did this turn out?! What a wonderful way to keep all those shirts and have a really useful and special quilt. Great job, it is truly a masterpiece.

  23. Laura says:

    The Harley quilt is an awesome keepsake! 🙂

  24. Oh my goodness, Roseanne and Sue, this quilt is spectacular! I loved reading about all the steps involved. I will definitely be saving this post in case I ever make a t-shirt quilt. Awesome job! And by the way, do you have A/C now? Have a great day! Mary
