    Help Arrange this T-Shirt QUilt Please

    I have this many t-shirts cut and ready to arrange, but for the life of me I can't get them to form an equal design. I have a couple shirts left that I can add, but they would be duplicates or they are not cotton. I also asked for some photos so I could add them in a couple blocks to even things out, but so far, haven't gotten any. What would you do?
    ps. I do plan to add sashing around each block and then a border.

    If you're putting borders around each, make some larger, some smaller.
    Otherwise, arrange, rearrange, rearrange, rearrange!

    I think I'd move the large blue square from the middle row and move it to the left row to balance the blue on the right row. I would move the solid red one from the center row up to the center of the quilt to anchor the quilt and then move the less reds ones around until they were balanced. I have no idea if this would work. As mentioned, you will need to play with them to see what works.

    Since there are 16 blocks, could you do a 4 x 4 grid and sash the smaller blocks to the size of the larger ones?

    You need to mix the big and little ones up more. Try one big with two little below in the first row, then one little, one big, one little in the middle row and then two little above one big in the last row and then see what you have left and sort them into "blocks" of approximately the same size. The sashing does not all have to be the same size and will actually be more interesting if it isn't just a straight grid.

    I did a couple last year and ended up putting 1 shirt on the back with a label - something to consider... otherwise - it looks like a great quilt in the making!
