First T Shirt quilt decision

I have been, slowly apparently, custom quilting the autumn jelly roll quilt so I don’t have much to show this week.  However, I did finally lay out T shirts for LJM’s quilt top.  ImageImage

I removed all but one off-white T shirt as they do nothing for the quilt top.  I’m going to make a traditional T shirt quilt, so now it needs study as to what color to use as the binding color, each t shirt’s frame.  This decision won’t be mine, but this environment is good for putting it together.   Dark blue is typical and works nicely…but not necessarily interesting…these are t shirts after all.  Purple, orange, red?  Print?

What about the Oscars?  I think Lady Gaga’s dress would make a lovely longarm quilting design…with silver threads? See this.  And Portia de Rossi? See here.  Would her dress be a better pieced design or longarm design?  Happy quilting.

    I have made a couple of t-shirt quilts for a friend (I have to dig deep to see if I can find a photo). I am thinking of making a t-shirt quilt of my own of all my Bruce Springsteen t-shirts!
