I’m making my first t-shirt memory quilt, for someone who is graduating from high school in 2 months. I’ve always rented a machine quilter and quilted my quilts in the past. Because this is made from t-shirts, I had planned to only sew in the borders – maybe stitch in the ditch on both sides, then maybe once in the middle of the border, so there would be 3 rows? My question is – will this work? The t-shirt blocks are 14”, or 13.5” after sewn. Is that too much space to have without any stitching? If so, what suggestions do you have to quilt this, without taking away from the shirts? Here is a pic of what I have done so far – 3 rows of 6.
