    Here are the two quilts that I made and (mostly) finished for Christmas this year!
    The T-shirt quilt needs to have one binding unsewn and redone and then needs tying, but as I was giving to my DH, I was able to let it slide.

    The other, Wacky Winter Fences, was for my SIL....

    Love the tee shirt quilt. Did you do patchwork and then applique the t's on? Also, did you use a stabilizer?
    That really came out great! My wonderful son asked me to make him one, and I'm really hesitant to start because I don't know how to do it.

    Nice quilts. Those T-shirts are really something!

    Thanks for sharing the back. My DH had to come see what I was laughing so hard at. He's happy to have company as a quilt-holder.

    Thanks!
    You know, I read all different directions and looked at all different pictures, then I simply went to town.
    I cut out the fronts, then stabilized with woven fusible stabilizer, and then trimmed them into nice rectangles.

    The pieces of Tshirt were all so varied in width, so I laid them out on the floor, in columns, till I got a pleasant design.
    Making all left edges align, I found the largest width block, and then chose a cotton novelty print to 'fill in' the width of the narrower blocks (note the flames, or batman)
    After that, it was a simple assembly by column and then all columns together to make the whole!

    Not daunting at all, once I thought it through...

    Coolness!!
    It was an act of desperation. I realized I needed a quilt for Christmas, to keep family harmony (last year I drew my other SIL's name and gave her a quilt that was almost finished already)

    I literally didn't even IRON the fabrics first. I just unfolded to two layers and sliced, somewhere between 1.5 and 4 inch pieces off, not even making the slices even from top to bottom. Then I pieced them, cut into 8.5 inch squares and assembled. (I DID Iron at some point, lol)
