    Tee Shirt Quilt

    Hey everyone......starting a tee shirt quilt for my daughter......and would like to know if anyone else has made one.........Ive watched some video's....and I havent seen anything that has caught my eye yet.....Iam looking for something that really looks like a quilt......meaning I just dont want to cut out the shirts fronts and sew a bunch of blocks together.....hoping I can find a pattern that maybe looks like a square and maybe some 2 inch pieces in that block like a log cabin block.....does that make sense?
    Anyways any advice or help would be appreciated.....also pics of some if available....Thx Trish

    I also been thinking about making a T-shirt quilt and I found this site with 50 pictures. Some great ideas. Hope this helps!

    you could cut the tshirt fronts to all of the same size - hopefully square. then you could alternate those with actual quilt blocks, like your log cabin blocks.

    You can do practically any type of block with tee shirts, but the most important process is stabilizing the shirts. Here is a memory tee shirt quilt for a friend of mine, her deceased husbands shirts. Sorry it's not a good picture, but you get the idea.

    I made one for my sister-in-law last fall which was my first time making one. I made it in a snowball alternating with a nine patch pattern.
    Quilting is my PASSION not my pass time.

    Actually it is NOT necessary to stabilize the T-shirts. I typically do not add interfacing unless the shirt is extremely flimsy.
