What are you most proud of? The fact that my folk are so proud of it and have asked me to make another one to put into an auction/fundraiser for the scholarships they provide.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure you stabalize the Tshirt w/ a knit stabilizer (Pellon is what I used)If you choose to use different size blocks as I did, be prepared to do a lot of math and mapping placement of blocks and fillers to square it all up.. I worked in rows. Remember to add the 1/2 inch for each seam, but subtract for your layout of quilt top.

This is so much more interesting and nicely done than most tee shirt quilts. Really nice.

very nice! Stabilize, stabilize, stabilize, That is definitly the key to working on t-shirts :-)

You're saying to use a 'knit' stabilizer, yet another quilter on Craftsy said to never use one for knits as it will pucker. Now I'm confused.

That is what has worked for me... don't know what else to tell you. It may lay better with another stabilizer.

Now I know what to do with the project ahead of me. Did you plan and perhaps purchase the additional colors for each block or did you use scraps?

I'd been "stashing" FQs for awhile, some just scraps. I think the only fabric I purchased just for this quilt was the wolves. UNM didn't/doesn't have any collegiate fabrics. Since then I've made one with Girl Scout Tshirts using RK's GS Collection and others with just the school colors. It's all your choice.
