    This is the t-shirt quilt I made for my nephew. I did t's on both sides, what a bear to quilt. I used the nonwoven stabilizer although it did not totally prevent stretching..I had divided the colors, using red white and blue on the front and the yellows, browns and green on the back, otherwise it was too busy...Everyone loved it...

    great quilt, you did a wonderful job :thumbup:
    I am in the thinking/planing stage for my first T-shirt quilt. My husband wants me to make him one out of his old car show t-shirts.

    Very nice.

    My nephew is graduating from high school next month. My sister gave me his old sports jerseys and wants me to put them together into a quilt.

    They are all the mesh type fabric. I have really procrastinated and now it's getting close to his graduation and I haven't even cut the jerseys apart yet.

    I'm planning on using double sided fusible and fusing them to muslin. But so far I haven't done anything.

    Hopefully it will be done for his graduation, but I'm not that hopeful.

    :?
