T-shirt quilts

Project Description

What are you most proud of? How happy it makes the individuals who receive them. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Cut out the T-shirts larger than the squares you want to use. Bind the T-shirt square with fusible fleece, then cut it down - make sure all the squares are the same if you want it to come out even - otherwise, you will have to figure out how to get them all to fit. I used sashings inbetween the T-shirt squares - it was a sweatshirt material (close to the T-shirt and fusible fleece - so as not to have any dips in the quilt)-for Carrie's quilt - also for the back , but on Rita's quilt I used fleece.

What you will need

  • T-shirts
  • fusible fleece
  • materials for sashings
  • fleece for backing
  • batting and quilt binding.

I made a t-shirt quilt from my husbands high school shirts, marine corp, and college shirts as a christmas gift. He loves it. I also had two pictures of him (One him in high school football uniform, and one of him in the Marines) and had them put on t-shirts and incorporated them into the quilt.
