Hi! I'm new to the board- I've been a long time lurker, but registered because I'm hoping someone can give me advice. I want to make a reversibe T shirt quilt from show shirts my son has been in. I was going to put the show tshirts on the front and the back of the shirts with the cast list on the back. I have made t shirt quilts before, that is not the problem. My question is: How do I quilt this with the back looking decent. I wanted to quilt in the ditch around each t shirt block & I wanted to have the seams of the front & the back T shirt line up. Do you understand what I am asking? Is this even possible? I have a couple ideas, but was wondering if anyone here has ever done it, and if so, how did you do it? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!

I haven't done this myself, but if you want the cast side to match the front side, I would suggest a quilt as you go. What I do know is that the front, batting, and back are quilted one block at a time which would assure that your cast and front are part of the same block. I'm sure someone here can help you with that. Hope you find something that works, it's a great idea. Mona

Thanks for your reply. I was kind of figuring I would have to do some kind of quilt as you go. I've never done that- maybe this will be a good project to learn on. I ordered Reversible Quilts by Sharon Pederson from the library. Hopefully that will have good instructions
