What advice would you give someone starting this project? Working with T-shirts is a little tricky. Make sure you use a light to medium-weight fusible to stabilize the stretch of the fabric.

Fantastic job and very American. I'm sure your dad loved it.

You did a great job on your dad's quilt! I have t-shirts from my son-in-law's college (Texas A&M) to make him a t-shirt quilt... thinking maybe for Christmas next year. Glad to know it's not that difficult. I did know about the stabalizer stuff... I think that will make all the difference in putting it together! Thanks for sharing!! ~pris

I used 15-inch blocks, 20 total and I buy my stabilizer by the bolt, but you can get a package of pellon with about 10 yards on the bolt for about 10 dollars,even less if you get it on sale.
