A marathon runner brought me 125 T-shirts. Watching his reaction to the completed T-shirt quilt, I decided to create a pattern so people could make their own. T-Quilts has been featured on Oprah and HGTV's "Simply Quilts" and numerous national magazines and newspapers. The packet includes a paper pattern you transfer to a plexiglass template, detailed, easy-to-follow directions adaptable to the number of favorite T-shirts you want to use. It shows how to cut and fuse the T-shirts, combine them with your choice of borders and backings, and finish with tie-downs and binding. Your one-of-a-kind T-Quilt will be a visual biography and colorful heirloom . BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY The project is suitable for people with beginning to accomplished sewing skills. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS The pattern is based on 12" finished squares but is adaptable to other sizes by using the included worksheet. It lets you figure measurements and quantities determined by how many and what size T-shirts are selected.

Supplies Needed

  • Sewing machine; rotary cutter, lip-edged ruler, cutting mat; fabric, interfacing, batting; piece of plexiglass; iron
  • The usual sewing notions.

I've always enjoyed entrepreneurial projects. After trademarking T-Quilts, I made over 350 custom t-shirt quilts and marketed the pattern. It will show you how to successfully make your own t-shirt quilt.
