    It's fantastic! I love T-shirt quilts - they are so personal. That's what I love about so many qullts and what I think makes them all treasures for not only those here now to enjoy, but for those left when we're gone. My husband is a big Nascar fan - I especially love your checkered border :thumbup:

    I have a bag of my son's t-shirts waiting for me to get brave enough to cut into them. What do you suggest? I have a few books with instructions. Just can't get started.

    I lucked out on the checkered fabric... found it for 4.99 a yard plus 40% off. It is an older fabric called Camp Christmas J. Wecker-Frisch Licensed to SSI. It is more like a plaid than checked.

    What a wonderful job. These are so popular right now and I say hooray - anything to get the younger generation to appreciate quilts and quilting.

    Seriously this time... Measure the shirts designs(length and width of designs) so you will know the maximum inches that the blocks need to be. I like to have a least and inch or so of t-shirt left on the outside of the design. I would sketch out a block arrangement for the size of quilt you want to make. If you are able to cut you designs to be all one size then a simple layout like I did would work fine. If there aren't all the same size you can add extra that you have cut off another shirt to make them come out the same size. There are other options, you could probable find numerous photo on this site showing different designs.

    I used Pellon light weight fusible non-woven interfacing #906F for the back side of the shits to keep them from stretching and make it easy to cut with a rotary cutter.

    What's not to love? This is one of the best T-Shirt quilts I have seen. I really need to make one out of my son's saved baseball shirts.

    Great quilt, those must be large tshirts. A good idea for anyone wanting to make one sometime is to buy the large or XL ones.

    I'm sure he'll love this quilt! Do you have any suggestions (do and don'ts) on making a t-shirt quilt. I want to make one but I'm procrastinating because I'm really clueless.

    It looks great. Can I ask if you are using a patter? I have a box full of my daughter's high school tshirts and would like to start working on a quilt.

    I haven't made that many t-shirt quilts, so not sure I'm qualified to hand out any Do and Dont's.
    I found Goose Tracks Quilts web site the other day, it has free basic instructions for t-shirt quilts.
    This is the site I got the idea to use the Pellon 906F fusible interfacing...it is much better than what I had used on some of the other quilts I made.
