    Thanks ladies! The method for this one can be found here:

    There is a book and templates available on how to create this type of tshirt quilt.

    Let me just say this... I won't ever quilt another done without interfacing. LOL

    Don't be such a chicken You did a beautiful job on it. I have teenagers here quilting these quilts all day long. They aren't that hard. You just have to work from the front and work a block at a time. No, you can't just turn on the computer and walk away.

    You did a marvelous job considering there was no interfacing. I have been to the too cool site and I have to disagree about the interfacing making the quilt stiff. I have made numerous T-shirt quilts and I ALWAYS do lightweight fusible interfacing and my T-Shirt quilts are NEVER stiff. They are soft and cuddly and MUCH less prone to stetching out of shape, puckering or pleating in the quilting process and I suspect they will hold up better over the long haul. My oldest one is over 10years old and haven't had any problems with it. The stiffness factor is entirely dependent on the interface. If you use a stiff heavy interfacing you will get a stiff heavy quilt. Use a lightweight one made especially for knits and all it does is keep the blocks from stretching out of shape and adds no stiffness. I am with you, I will not quilt a T-shirt quilt if interfacing wasn't used.

    Andrea, I love your style of tshirt quilts and will definitely make them, but I will be interfacing them. It was the seams that gave me so much grief, they want to stretch forever when the hopping foot goes over them. Obviously I oculd have raised my hopping foot enough to clear the seams, but I didn't! LOL

    Nice quilt and I love that back! I agree they need the interfacing though. I like quilts to be warm, but then we live in the northwest so need that!

    How did you keep the knits from stretching when you were piecing it?

    I didn't piece it, I only quilted it.
