This is the perfect one of a kind quilt for a man cave, dorm room, to take to games, or tailgating. The perfect quilt for any Kentucky superfan! This quilt is homemade from upcycled t-shirts on the front. The blue border is made from a t-shirt with UK detailing on the left side (close-up in pic 7) and the flannel border is made from blue, white and black pajama pants. The back is made from a single piece of blue blizzard fleece from Jo-ann fabrics. This quilt measures approximately 53" wide and 66" long, perfect for snuggling on the couch or in the stands. The colors of the t-shirts are varying shades of blue and black. Since they are all from different Kentucky t-shirts with varying degrees of wear they do not match perfectly, which makes this quilt look really cool and different. The plain black squares on the front have an X sewn through them, this makes the quilt a little more sturdy and looks really cool, you can especially see it on the back (picture 2).
Inside the quilt is new 12oz Hobbs polyester batting which makes it really warm. This quilt is very soft, fluffy and cozy.
The black binding is made from a t-shirt and hand sewn on the back, which makes it very strong and gives it even more of a handmade feel.
Once in a while, to make the print on a shirt more centered, I will seam it with another piece of the same shirt. You can barely see the seam and it makes the printing much more centered. (This quilt has 2 squares with seams).
As with anything homemade/handmade, some of my quilts have minor imperfections on them. None of the imperfections, however, interfere with the usability or look of the quilt.
All of my quilts are made from clean t-shirts and pajama pants. Made in a smoke free home.
