Queen Size Memory Quilt

96 x 108

This is the first of the 5 memory quilts I was asked to make by my friend. She chose this cross quilt pattern, but only had 4 polo shirts for me to use. This was my initial fabric pull, but I did end up adding in two more of each color. 

I think I need a bigger design wall! This quilt is 16 x 18 blocks and I cut my squares at 6.5". I you wanted to make a king size bed, you would have to add some borders, but that would make it a very long quilt. 

I have it on my king size bed and it over hangs less than 2 blocks. It will be shorter once it is washed.

The entire cross was just his shirts which made it a little more challenging to sew together. I tried in the rest of the quilt not to put two shirts touching.  I really like this pattern, but not this color combo. I did get to make another one in a lap size, but I'll show you that one later.

Linking with Busy Hands Quilts for Finished or Not Friday.


  1. I'll bet your friend is really happy with this finish.

  2. Hi Shannon,
    I think this is a really lovely quilt. Wow - to make 5 for a friend is really, really nice of you. {{Hugs}} I am sure each of them will be so special to her. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. I think it looks great. You actually cut up the polo shirts and used them in the quilt? As if T shirt fabric isn't scary enough! But you handled it like a pro.

  4. What a neat memory quilt. I really like the borders.

  5. It is a very bright quilt, for the friend to keep or it goes to one of her kids? You are doing an awesome job!
