Though I am not a quilter, I aspire to be. I have a bustle of children (in today's standards!), and with all of the different activities they are apart of, we have quite the Tshirt collection going. I've often thought it would be neat to send them off to college with one (thankfully I still have 6 more years until my oldest heads in that direction...tear.) but at my pace, I need to get started now. Again, no quilting experience, so any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

amoma,

Nice meeting you.  I started to sew together quilts in2013  and I learned how to do it by watching youtubes on the internet.  If I wanted to do a t-shirt quilt I would tipe that into the net and see what I can find.

PINTEREST! ... Loads of suggestions there. 

See is by clicking on this link you can find my PINTEREST board on t-shirt quilts.

Basically, you will have to cut them out. I cut only the sides and arms and shoulders to make two pieces. You'll have to figure your layout. Then you will also have to back them with interfacing before cutting more specifically. From the PINTEREST board, you can find lots of tutorials on how to do it. Several books and patterns are out there too.

Let me know if I can help. I'm working on some now.

Welcome to the group.
