Looking for Quilt Makers - need t-shit quilt

"It has been awhile since I have seen any shirts I had to have. The old Calvin and Hobbes shirts were great! I had one that had them walking down a path next to a lake and the words "Goin where the water tastes like rain". It was cool, but I lost it somehow. My wife and I had a box of all our old tour shirts in a box in the attic. Some were wearable and some were worn down. I took the ones that were mostly salvagable and had a quilt made out of them for our 5th year anniversary. It has both of our first lot shirts and our sons first dead shirt, the Calvin and Hobbes Not Fade Away. The lady even hand stitched the stealies and Calvin and Hobbes onto the back. It is an unbelievable quilt. I only paid $250 for the girl to do it for ma.Here are some pictures..."

I would love to have a T-shirt Quilt made from my Dead Shirt collection. I am unable to do it myself because the eyes/fingers don't work well together any longer, but I would be willing to pay somebody to do it for me.

This is a perfect idea for an aspiriing entrepreneur with quilting skills. I can see the potential, cause everyone I khow has a box of T-shirts just sadly sitting there in various states of decay.

I would then have my quit blocked and framed. I think when the time came that it would sell for the big bucks, along with my signed/numbered/framed posters that will comprise the bulk of my estate. My heirs won't be seeing much else unfortunately

Any quilters out there? email is in my profile.

that's a great idea ! I have tons of old dead shirts that are no longer wearable , but I don't want to throw them out.
A nice warm quilt would be great !

I've never even thought of the dress/skirt idea, but I'm glad you mentioned it! How fantastic!!! The quilts are a great idea, but something I can wear is so much more practical for me. Thank you, Abba!!

It is the best...I love wearable art!!! A tapestry looks great but something you can wear looks way better
