    Years ago before I even saw a t-shirt quilt, I had been saving my kids' t-shirts with the idea I would put together for college graduation.. Well... let's just say - it didn't happen. Now that I have a book, I realize I should have left some of them in larger pieces. Anyone tackle this or have idea?

    Here's my 2 cents worth - I wrote this review years ago on ebay. It's for making a basic t-shirt quilt. You can read it over and go from there.

    there are also lots of great resources on this site...just use the search feature up top.

    I've made two and had a blast making them. I'm getting ready to make another one.

    I've made quite a few. Check the "search" link at the top for several threads on this blog. They are fun and easy!

    I just helped do two for Garth Brooks. His mom wanted them made from his t-shirts back from HS to now! Way cool...

    We used French fuse tricot interfacing and they did not stretch, nor ravel, or get stiff!

    I was watching 'America Sews' a few weeks ago and Sue Haussman had Lisa Maki on from 'Crooked Nickel'. She showcased how to make a T Shirt quilt which was fast and easy, no problems with stretching etc etc. If you are interested click on the link below. Hope this helps
