    running1,
    here's a link to a T-shirt quilt my DD made for me. She used the book "How to Make a Too Cool T-Shirt Quilt" by Andrea T. Funk.


    I'm not sure the link will work--I'm technologoically challenged. If it doesn't work, you can search online for info on the book.

    Nope, it doesn't work. You'll have to search online for the book.

    A friend asked me about making a quilt using sport jerseys. Has anyone done that?

    I would love to hear the pros and cons of quilting with t-shirts on both sides and any problems you faced! Also would love a picture. I am considering creating a quilt with T-shirts on both sides but am not sure about it. Thanks, any comments would help!

    In Tshirt quilts for my son and daughter it was a mix of sport jerseys and T-shirts. I only use stabilizer for T-shirts that are very flimsy or for 'mesh' sport jerseys. I did not have a problem mixing the fabrics.

    I would do an an advance search because in the years I have been a member here, I have seen lots of interesting T-shirt designs posted here.
    A Good Friend, like an old quilt, is both a Treasure and a Comfort

All of a sudden (after 37 years) we have SO MANY T-SHIRTS!!! I've seen a pattern for making these quilts, but can't remember where... and I really want to go ahead and start cutting out the cute parts so I can recycle the rest as cleaning rags and such. What, if anything do I need to do before cutting? Do I go ahead and stabilize? What do you use to stabilize t-shirt blocks? Does the type of sashing matter? Do I use batting? In other words... HELP!!??!!?? I need all the help you can offer! And THANK YOU for all your suggestions!!
    Take a moment and look at some of the online tutorials...

    Linbails, I had to go back and look a couple times because I saw royal blue back ground. Now I see you shadowed each tee with the black. It looks great. What a great idea. It came out like the illusion on MSQ. Gramajo, I have not made a tee shirt quilt yet either so I am very interested in this thread.

    Asking a seamstress to mend is like asking Picasso to paint your garage.
