T-shirt quilt

A layout with only shirts.  Quilted with a large meander pattern with clear thread.  This was done hand-guided to avoid stitching over the faces on the photos.

I was asked about the clear thread, is it the stiff, scatchy nylon kind?  No, it's a very fine, clear polyester, made by Superior Threads, called Monopoly.  Soft and pliable, but strong.  It's a great choice for t-shirt quilts, or any other quilt where there is a big variance in fabric colors- very dark and very light, it disappears and doesn't distract from the fabrics.
