    My personal T-shirt quilt w/ Stars and Loops Panto

    I've been working pretty hard on this. This is the first T-shirt quilt I have pieced or quilted. I used the Too Cool T-shirt method of piecing but I used interfacing as I was worried about stretching. I used thermore as the batting. I would not choose to do that again as it was so thin it was very difficult to get the tension the way I wanted it. I would probably use a lofty poly next time or a prewashed cotton. I had some issues with the stitching on the rubbery surface of the t-shirt so I followed someones advice and used Glad Press N Seal over the design and that worked very well. I am very happy with the outcome and will move onto my daughters t-shirt quilt next made out of her baby clothes Hope you like the pics.

    Great job. I love the way the tees are all different sizes and have a collage look. Thanks for sharing.

    I am being commissioned to make a t shirt quilt. I guess I will need to get the book that you used.

    Glad Press and Seal? hmm.. sounds interesting! I haven't been brave enough to do a t-shirt quilt, so I may have to look up the press n seal tip. Your quilt looks great!

    That should bring back good memories every time you look at it.
