    I made this harley quilt for my Bro in law last year. I embroidered a poem on the backing but did not take a pic of it.

    I love it! I have been given a tote of Harley shirts to turn into a quilt, do you put interfacing on them first?

    I used the lightweight interfacing on them. You need to cut the shirts and fuse the interfacing on them before you cut the desired size of the block.

    Very nice quilt that I'm sure will create lots of smiles from the recipient. I wondered how to do t-shirt quilts - as a newbie, I couldn't figure out how the stretchy fabric would work with the cottons. Well, now I know... Thanks.

    I too was wondering how the t-shirt fabric would work, now I know.... interfacing. Got it!
    Great use for all the "can't get rid of" t-shirts!

    My bro in law did not even know his shirts were missing!
    They were some he hadnt worn in awhile and my sister snuck them out of his closet and gave them to me. After he saw the quilt he didnt care that I cut them up. lol.. Now my DH knows every harley shirt he has so sneaking them would be totally impossible! lol I did however get some of his racing shirts from him and I did the same thing only with blue flames. If I can find the pic I will post that one too.
