T-Shirt Quilt

I have been getting alot of questions about T-Shirt quilts lately.

Maybe the newfound interest is because it is now spring and T-Shirt quilts are popular for graduation gifts.  With the end of the school year approaching....it's time to start gathering shirts for your masterpiece!

Many people make T-Shirt quilts by cutting a 12 inch square from the front of each shirt and laying them in a grid to form the quilt top.

This is a sample of how I like to create a T-Shirt quilt.  I think of it as a big puzzle and cut the shirt panels into different sizes and shapes.  Fitting the pieces together using sashing makes an attractive quilt top.

Remember to use a medium weight fusible stablizer to keep the pieces from stretching out of shape.  I find it easier to attach the stablizer to the back of the T-Shirt piece before cutting it to its final shape and size.

Happy Quilting,
