Memory T-shirt quilt with international t-shirts

The quilt above was made using the brother’s t-shirts, the one below the sister’s:

Memory t-shirt quilt made from shirts collected throughout the world

It was a pleasure to work with these vibrant and interesting t-shirts – the t-shirts on the sister’s quilt were particularly colorful, so I had to add a border on the bottom, using the excess material for added pizzazz.
