All of us at studio 703 + RLD are excited to introduce Quilts by Dodi! A client and friend, Dodi handcrafts beautiful t-shirt quilts, capturing fond memories and moments in a creative way. “Every quilt is a unique, custom work of art based on your t-shirts. Its like a giant, soft, cozy scrapbook!”
How did you start making t-shirt quilts?
“I discovered quilting when I was trying to make a meaningful baby gift for my friend who was adopting a baby girl in Russia. For some reason I wanted to make this baby a quintessentially American gift! What else but a handmade quilt! That was 20 years ago! To complete the circle, Maddie got her own t-shirt quilt for graduation about 2 years ago!”
What exactly is a t-shirt quilt?
A t-shirt quilt is where the top layer of the quilt is pieced from blocks cut from the T-shirts and/or other clothing or textiles. These items have graphics that are either silk-screened, printed, drawn or stitched on them. To be considered a quilt, a T-shirt quilt must have 3 layers – the quilt top, batting and the backing – that are held together with some type of functional and/or decorative stitching.
What is something most people don’t know about you?
I think a little known fact (more like odd!) about me is I’m a certified kettle bell trainer! I got my certification about 11 years ago. But that has nothing to do with quilts!!!
