    Too cool t - shirt quilt

    I used the book Too Cool T-shirt quilt by Andrea T Funk. You can get her book at
    http://www.toocooltshirtquilts.com/make-it-yourself/

    I really enjoy making this quilt! I've made a few t-shirt quilt all different. I did use interfacing on the back of the shirt. My quilter Likes to have all the shirt Interfacing. I use Joann's fabric .99 cent interfacing it very light. And I add a border. Both things she does not have you do in the book.

    Pretty cool even upside down.

    I love the colors.

    Great job - I have that book and I really can't imagine making one without the interfacing.

    I love doing T-shirt quilts. I have a question was the book really helpful? Did you buy and use the templets? I'm thinking about it but would love to know what you think.

    The book give a lot of ideas, tell how to do the math on how to get the size with amount of shirts you have. Show how to map out your shirts. I did buy the templets. But in the book tell you how to cut your own out of a sheet of plastics glass. I like how the different size blocks work together. Hope it helps!

    That book is on my list. After catching up on my work patterns...and quilting 3 completed tops...and 2 new quilts for my kids...and I'm sure a baby quilt will pop up between now and then. Oh, heck, maybe I should just admit that I'll never make all of the quilts I want to make. Would that make my life any easier or guilt free?
    Your t-shirt quilt is wonderful! I do like this style without all the sashing!

    It looks great! I am taking a t shirt quilt class next week, so I am looking at pictures of everyone else's here! I am so excited because I have saved all of my daughters soccer shirts. She is playing in college now and this will be her senior year, her last season.... so before the season I will have this quilt completed as a gift for her!! : )
