Caroline's T-shirt Quilt

Welcome to my blog! My name is Brenda Rogers and I began my business, B Sue Sews, about 1 year ago. I custom design and sew memory quilts out of old t-shirts and clothing.

This t-shirt quilt was done as a high school graduation present for Caroline from her mother. The quilt is about queen size and includes t-shirts from Caroline's club soccer career. Caroline and her mom, Donna, picked the material for the quilt and I helped pick out the backing after the top portion of the quilt was finished.

I am thoroughly enjoying my adventure with my business so far! I price each quilt taking into account the square inches and cost of thread, fabric and batting. I am open to any creative ideas to make a quilt full of memories to snuggle up in!
