A Very Casual Bedspread


A Tee Shirt Bedspread
 
 
A king size bedspread made out of worn out Tee Shirts belonging to a friend and her dear husband. She messaged me one day saying she had a bunch of Tee shirts to give away. That's when I suggested a Tee shirt quilt or a bedspread. Well the rest is history and the out come is here for you to see.
 
The tee shirt bedspread is made out of several tee shirts. The upper portion is discarded, while the lower rectangular portion is used. This project is not for the faint hearted as the jersey material stretches and does cause a lot of agony while sewing. Can be tried by an advanced sewer who also has a lot of patience. Beautiful memory quilts can be made out of tee shirts that have been hoarded over the years.
A bunch of tee shirts:

Each block sliced into half and rearranged:
 
 
 
 
A silk brocade strip added to join the two parts of the rectange:

 
Blocks completed with colourful borders and sashing:

The bedspread is all its glory on a king size bed:
