    T-Shirt Quilt finally done_NEVER AGAIN

    Oh my all I can say is I'm so glad this one is done. First and I bet the last t-shirt i ever do. A friend at hospice asked me to make it for her son. of course since i don't know the word NO sorry, I did it.

    I followed every link,and hints and still had a horrible time. One row,of course after i had it sewed on I realized one block was upside down. so had to use the seam ripper and take it apart. Of course even with the interfacing it still scretched enough to not line up correct. And of course didn't realize that either till I sewed the row back on. ICK!!! more seam ripping

    Well its done. no fancy quilting since I suck at that just quilted in the ditch. That also was a problem since my machine isn't one with the quilt table attached and the quilt is HUGE!!!.

    I think after this quilt I Now know I can say SORRY NO WAY!!! LOL!!

    Looks like it turned out great. I have no desire to make one. I have seen lots of them on here.

    It sounds like this was a nightmare. But rest assured you did a great job and I'm sure it will be appreciated.

    You did a great job. I made one and had many people ask me to do one for them. I said that it would cost $300. No one said yes to that price which is what I wanted. I, too, did not enjoy the process.

    Standing O for you and your sticktuitness. From here it looks perfect. I'm sure the person you made it for will love it. We quilters tend to be so hard on ourselves don't we. You did good!

    Love this t-shirt quilt. You did a fantastic job, even if it was a pill to make. The recipient will really love it. Great job.

    Your quilt turned out great! A shame you didn't like the process. I took a class at the LQS and with the interfacing we used actually had very little problems with it, no stretching to speak of. I'm making another one for my brother-in-law soon. Nothing fancy mind you. I'm wondering if there are different types of interfacing for t-shirt quilts. I'm thinking I better make sure I get the same one again so I don't run into problems.

    Hilarious...now that you're done, sort of funny that you had such a time with it and that the sport is Wrestling. And the quilt is beautiful. You did a great job. I am doing one for my oldest grandson who graduates in a couple of years from high school. His mother saved a Tshirt from each year of sports, so all sizes. But she gave me carte blanche on the overall look.

    even with all of the trouble you had it came out beautiful. I had started one and had some trouble so I quit....I think you have inspired me to get it finished.
