What are you most proud of? I have made over 75 t-shirt quilts for customers, the feedback has been positive and encouraging. I'm happy to give people a way to tell their "t-shirt stories!"

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Before you cut the shirts, iron them with starch. Using starch gives the knit fabric some rigidity that makes the cutting & sewing easier and more consistent. I buy starch by the gallon and mix my own spray solution...three parts water to one part starch.

I want to make the perfect tshirt quilt and some lap quilts in my son's memory. He passed away on July 1, 2013, at the age of 25. He was very musical and loved concerts, and the great outdoors. I have about 50-75 concert t shirts to start my project. Am so nervous that I will screw this up. I've cut each tshirt into 16" squares, and have backing on them. Help me to get over my fear of putting these together?? Thank you!
