It’s a Hard Rock quilt

This was a custom Christmas order for a wonderful lady.  Her daughter gave me her collection of Hard Rock Cafe t-shirts.  I took them, organized them so they flowed the way I wanted.  Then cut out rectangles, sewed them together, added batting and a t-shirt fabric on the back.    I wanted to keep the quilt simple and comfortable just like the t-shirts themselves.    So I decided to just tie the layers together at the intersections, originally with buttons.  After looking at the layout I realized I had six shirts that I used the back design in the quilt, leaving the front  small design still intact.  Since I had six intersections, I thought it would be more interesting to quilt these patches at the corners.   It worked out great.   Also instead of using binding,  I just double topstiched around it.    This created a wonderful soft and snuggily blanket.   This ended up being only 4×5 but it is perfect for a lap blanket, especially on cold winter nights.

Merry Christmas
