    My 20yr old daughter saved her dance t-shirts and would like me to make a quillow out of them. I'm not sure how to go about it as I am new to quilting...I do know how to follow a pattern pretty well though. Can you help? If a quillow is too difficult maybe you could advise how to incorporate these t's into a quilt...thank you

    We had a discussion on making a quillow not too long back. Here is the link.

    Be sure to also read directions on how to stablize the t-shirts or they will stretch this way and that. Barb C

    Fons and Porter did a show on making a quillow not too long ago. It's probably on their website still. They didn't make it out of tshirts, though. You probably just need to use some kind of stabilizer for the tshirts so they don't stretch out as you sew. Then just cut to the size block you want and go for it. I'd like to make one out of my grandson't outgrown tshirts. He's had some cute ones.

    Jacquemoe made a great t-shirt quilt that she showed us last month. Sara
