Memorial Quilt Made from Golf Shirts and Pants

Linda S. made this for a client who’s husband was an avid golfer. He passed away and she wanted a wall hanging made from his clothing for her daughter.

The fabrics these golf shirts were made from were divine. I would love to have shirts out of this material. It was so soft- almost like a thick silk!

In the outside corners she placed pockets from his jeans. That presented a bit of a challenge to place/connect motifs that wouldn’t get too close to the pockets and would fill out the space. I really needed to stay off the pockets as the seams were too thick to sew through or over.

The center is made from the back of the shirts and includes the shirt tags. Cute idea, eh? I had to stay off those as well as they would have moved under the hopping foot and I didn’t want to introduce any pleats or puckers. Finding the path around them to keep them from shifting was a challenge.
Golf CU3I used the Autumn Splendor collection from One Song Needle Arts.
I really like these quilting motifs as they aren’t too feminine so they worked well on this memorial quilt.

I used Bottom Line in the top and bobbin with a cotton sateen on the back and Hobbs 80/20 for the batting.

I think Linda’s customer is going to cherish this quilt. What do you think?
