    One of my co-workers asked that I make this for her to give to her sister. I have made three more t-shirt quilts since making this one. They are so fun to make because each one is different depending on the shirts and fabric used

    First t-shirt quilt

    lovely! I have several to make and I was wondering if you "reinforce" your tshirts at all before you quilt them? I forget what it's called but I think it's some sort of fusible batting to help strengthen the tshirts during the quilting process?

    just wondering!!

    A fusible stabilizer.
    I love the look of that quilt.

    Yes, I use fusible interfacing on the t-shirts to prevent stretching.

    Are your dogs bassets or part bassets? I have a basset, that is why I ask. My basset (Otis) helps me with all my quilts and has a few of his own quilts!

    I like how you took some of the smaller motifs & photos & made them into a block of 4. Great job!

    The most beautiful T-shirt quilt I have ever seen.
