What materials did you use?
Jerseys from any sport. Mine are from AYSO. Batting, quilting, material for sashing and binding. Save the extra pieces for the border.
Very nice. I love the unique idea of the multi colors around the border and intertwined in the quilt.
these shirts look like the polyester type soccer jerseys. Did you use a fusible web on the back? If so what knid? knit or regular.
They are a polyester. Some have more stretch than others. I block each one, instead of using a stabilizer. I don't like the way it feels using that. I just continue to re-square each time. Hope this helps! Let me know if you need more help.
I did not use any stablizer. I know people do. I just didn't like the way it felt. Because the jerseys are all made so differently,,the materials have different types of stretching. When I added the sashing in between I just kept re-squaring my squares. This made it easier in the long run, when I sewed the rows together.
THANKS for the inspiration! I have saved ALL my sons jerseys from AYSO Soccer, COMP Soccer, Basketball, Baseball and Track. Now he is in Air Force & I was trying to search for a way to make a memory quilt out of them. Yours looks AMAZING! I only hope I do even half as well as you did & I will be one happy MOM!! (The only class I failed in School, even through HS & College, was HomeEc with was sewing & cooking..)
Lana, holler if I can help you!! I have made them for other people. They send me a bag of shirts and I return them in the form of a quilt. Just let me know if you need help. Good luck!!
This is awesome! How did you quilt this? Is it an all over pattern? or just quilted/Stitch in the ditch in the sashing?
