The Best T-shirt Quilts of 2022 - Part 2 of 4

January 9th, 2023

By Andrea Funk

So many T-shirt quilts made in 2020

Each December I go through photos of all the T-shirt quilts we made over the past 12 months. The photographs here shows some of the quilts we made in 2022. There are a lot of them!

It's so difficult to choose which quilts to include in the Best T-shirt Quilts of 2022. This year I have chosen some 70 quilts and pillows to share with you. I just couldn't decide. I think you'll agree that 70 is way too many quilts to look at all at once. So I'm breaking this into 4 parts over the next 4 weeks. This is week two of four.

This second group of awesome quilts we made in 2022 are quilts with borders and stained-glass T-shirt quilts. Click on the topic you would like to view.

Size - 60 x 76 - Odd Size

Border - 4" Pieced

Comments: If there is one we love, its a bright fun border! We always use our customers T-shirts for our 4" pieced borders so the colors always match.

For this quilt we pulled the bright colors from the quilt and used them in the border to bring a fun brevity to the quilt.

T-shirt Quilt

Size - 64 x 88 - Odd Size

Border - 4" Solid & 8" Pieced


This is a graduation quilt for an athlete who received a lot of Varsity Letters. After many back and forth conversations with the customer we decided to stack them into a border on the left side of the quilt. The stacking allows the letters to stand out and be a focal point.

I love how this turned out!

T-shirt Quilt

Size - 92 x 100 - Queen Size

Border - 4" Pieced = 2" Solid


The pieced border is made up of T-shirt material from the T-shirts in the quilt and material from a very special plaid flannel shirt. 

We had to cut the flannel shirt very carefully in order to get enough blocks for the border. It was a nice challenge, and very worth the extra work.

T-shirt Quilt

Size - 64 x 76 - Odd Size

Border - 4" Pieced + 2" Solid


The 4" border on this quilt is unique! It's made up of socks, shirts, lounge pants, and a lot of other fabrics. 

The fabrics were special fabrics the customer had saved over the year. The combination of different fabrics, the colors from the T-shirts and the socks really makes the border pop!
