T-shirt quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? He gave these to me over 3 years ago?! I was scared to cut the shirts because I knew what they would do once I cut them. So after doing tons of research!! I dove in!! And I did it! The fact that I actual finished it and it turned out so great!! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just be sure you put interfacing in before cutting!!! And have fun with it!!

What you will need

  • T-shirts
  • interfacing
  • cotton and warm and natural cotton batting

Q&A with boxer Mom

Louise Brogan asked:
WOW! These quilts are usually unsuccessful... You got it right! It's awesome. My son is in his 2nd year of college and just moved into a frat house (yikes!) and I just completed a quilt for him to take back to school with him. But he would have sooooooo loved this T-Shirt quilt. You did a beautiful job!! The colors work.... EVERYTHING works - Beautiful! (I just noticed, they're all Harley Davidson shirts.... my husband has a gazillion HD t-shirts. Now I can make a similar quilt for him!)
boxer Mom answered:
First of all let me say thank you! My best advice I can give you is to take your time, put the interfacing on the shirts before you cut them down. Then let the fun begin, let the shirts determine the size of the quilt and the layout. That's what I did. Sometimes you just have to go with the flow of it!!
