    I started out with tshirt quilts and have gone on to experiment with others. Would love to learn FMQ and quilt as you go. Larger ones have to be sent out to LAQ

    All of your quilts are wonderful! Nice job!

    I'll have to show my neighbor your t-shirt quilts. She has never quilted before and wants to make a quilt from t-shirts she and her DH have gotten at foot races over the years. Did you stabilize the t-shirts first? If yes, what did you use? Thanks!

    My husband would be SO jealous of the Blue Jackets quilt! I've just started making him a quilt, and I don't want him to see this one!

    Where did you get the Blue Jackets fabric?

    Yes, I did stabilize the shirts with just lightweight fusuble interfacing before I cut them. I also made one for my neice out of all of her sorority tshirts, and another for a little girl who loved Tinkerbell. To see more go to tshirttreasures.com. Thanks

    The "Legacy" is made of the Legacy by Moda. I loved the collection. This is from the jelly roll.
