Well, here are my pictures so far. I will try to explain how I quilted each block. I am new to this, so please don't judge my efforts.
The first block, the pink and green block, I did what I think is a meandor in the center and a leaf design on the white part. I do not know if you can tell much by looking at the back.
Block 2, pink star, I did stitch in the ditch and a diamond in the center.
The backs of my blocks do not want to upload. I will take some more pictures and finish uploading in a few minutes.
Block 3, yellow star with blue flowers, I did it all meandering.
Block 4, yellow star with yellow and burnt orange flowers, I echoed around the star and did a square in the center.
Block 5, pinkish red star with pink flowers on biege background, I did what I call a repeat of echoing around the star.
Block 6, mauve star with blue center, I tried to make a vine pattern.
vickig626, that is a nice looking tee shirt quilt.
vickig - Your T-Shirt Quilt is awesome! I think it is one of the best ones I have seen!
ssnare - You did a great job on your quilting of your blocks. I have not mastered meandering yet! I usually just stitch in the ditch or follow around designs.
Vicki - Such a nice T-shirt quilt. I now feel that I can tackle one. Thanks.
ssnare - Your blocks are gonna make a beautiful quilt. I love the picts.
I am planning to use this technique on my next major quilt as my shoulder objects to my quilting twin and larger on my home machine. I've done it before, but not lately.
ssnare - i believe that was answered previously. You would use whatever fabric YOU wish for the backing. Just cut it to the size rcommended in the tutorial being used. You apply the backing as you quilt each block individually, and BEFORE attaching blocks 1:1 - you are quilting both the front and back of the quilt as you go.

or in different fabrics for each block, as seen below.
Hope that helps!
I never thought about doing this, what a great idea. I have had a few bobbles where I had a seam not lay flat and had a do over, this would solve that!

What a turn off .... and you've proven, it does not need to be such! :)
