Q100 – Savanna’s Memories – T-Shirt Quilt

Good Day,

Today a young lady graduates from high school. A gift of memories from her mother and grandmother, a T-Shirt Quilt – Savanna’s Memories.



The construction of Savanna’s Memories is a combination of both Traditional and Variable style t-shirt quilts. Logos from the schools attended and community memberships are included.

Our decision was to create blocks, that is 24 blocks that each sewn would result in 13 ½” by 13 ½”, (34.3 cms by 34.3cms), squares. The 24 blocks aligned in four columns of six each appears to conform to the Traditional style. The center column is 18”, 45.7 cms, wide sewn. It is the display panel for the smaller and the extra-large logos. This creates the idea of a Variable style. The borders, on the t-shirt blocks that have borders, are also variable. The sashing, borders, backing, and binding are Robert Kaufman Fabrics 100% Kona cotton in the colors Sable and Teal.

The final dimensions of the Savanna’s Memories are: Width – 84” (213 cms) and Length – 94” (239 cms). Savanna’s Memories is the size of a queen-size quilt.

Here are more close-ups of Savanna's Memories.


We decided that the quilting, to compliment the t-shirts, should be clean, horizontal parallel lines.

T-shirt quilts are tough to create with a 'finished' look. You have done a beautiful job on this one. Love the use of frames and fabric. I have one in progress with the same style. I hope it turns out have as well.
