    I have various emblems from team uniform, Tigers,etc. And My "mission" is to make a small blanket out of them. I bought some pellum to use for backing on the t-shirt material, and I was thinking of using some maroon flannel/fleece, ad maybe sewing each piece together and then attaching to make a small throw. I just wondered if anyone had any other solutions/ideas?

    I don't have a pattern for it but I saw a quilt made with the collar and top of the shoulders in the quilt . Very cute.

    Hi!

    I've done a few t-shirt quilts -- here's what I've done to see if it will help.

    DZ Quilt - I framed each shirt, bag, hoodie, etc in flannel, then I squared it up to match a piece of backing flannel - quilted squares individually then sewed them together to make a tshirt/rag quilt

    JMHS Quilt - I just cut the shirts in to the squares, and kept adding brown and gold squares around them. - If I had this one to do over it would be so much neater and "organized"

    OCSA Quilt - I drew a giagantic star on the backing fabric, then pieced the shirts to fit inside the star. outlined the star with that pretty sparkly black fabric, then added purple/teal squares until the quilt was the right size.

    Student Quilt - This is the closest to a regular quilt i've done - Shirts with actual sashing between them.

    =) enjoy -- I love making tshirt quilts!

    I found a really neat book at the library about making t shirt quilts, had some beautiful ones in it, like shirts that were from a bicycle group haad a bike path going all around the quilt, through woods across river etc. they were really cute and had for men and women, a pink and purple one for a girl that runs for the breast cancer, along with hearts and of course pink ribbons for the extra blocks, just kind of what ever the imagination took off for.
