  • First time quilter with possibly radical plan for t-shirt quilt - advice?

    Hi, This would be my first time quilting anything but I'm an avid reader/learner with time to dedicate to the project. I have far too many t-shirts and no need for more than one t-shirt quilt (cutting down on clutter). I'm going for a variable design since my shirts all have different usable...

  • Re: Tshirt Quilt

    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...

  • T-shirt quilt help please!

    A non-sewing friend cut the fronts from her t-shirts and just sewed them all together. No interfacing and bulky seams. It is 90 x 90, large and not "squared up". Should I try to fuse interfacing to the middle of each t-shirt as it is, or just layer batting and backing as it is? I though about...

    Yes, I have done this. Cut the T-shirt up the side seams and across the top just below the collar (the front or the back, whichever you are using for the quilt). Then use fusible interfacing to stabilize the T-shirt so it won't stretch - you can buy this by the yard at Joann's and it's very...

    shelley, you just fuse the t-shirt material before you cut them to size. sew them like you would regular fabric. you need to decide if you want to have them all uniform or different sizes. gini this is another site that would be good if we had tags, so we could locate it again

  • Re: Question about T-shirt quilt!!

    Tammy, I made one for DH's oldest nephew (first one I did) and I cut the shirts up first. I strongly recommend ironing on the fusing before you cut so you don't have to worry about stretching. It was a little difficult to work with, but not impossible. If I remember right, I washed all the shirts...
