What are you most proud of?
That my son is so proud of this quilt.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't be afraid to start the quilt!
How do you keep the shirts from stretching to much
Some people use another layer of a thin cotton (like a lining) behind the t-shirt square. Others use a light weight fusible interfacing.
I did exactly what Sara has said--I adhered interfacing to each t-shirt square
I have a bag of my son's t-shirts that I want to make a quilt for my grandson but just haven't had the courage to take the roller cutter to them
I just started making t-shirt quilts for my sister children from their Dad's t-shirts. He passed away recently and the first few shirts I cut into were hard because I would tear-up. Had to put the project aside for a couple of weeks. Started again and hope to have the four quilts done by Christmas. It's been an emotional roller-coaster. My niece wanted to help make the quilts for her brothers but she cried more than I did. Called a couple of my quilting buddies to lend a hand.
Thanks for the tip about the interfacing!
