After I graduated from college, I made a t-shirt quilt with the t-shirts from my sorority. I had no idea what I was doing. I chose my shirts and some quilt fabric that matched to make the border. I do love the way it turned out, but it was not without challenges. I had no idea how to sew knit t-shirt material. Despite what the picture shows (or doesn't!) most of the shirt squares are pulled in the corners.
My second attempt went much better! I decided to make a quilt for my brother's birthday. He's transplanted to Denver, and I always like to make him feel
When I make the next quilt, I may merge the wonderful pattern I used this time with some of my favorite things about the first quilt I made. I do love the patchwork sashing of the sorority quilt. And I have big plans to adapt the pattern to make quilts from the All Stars' baby clothes in a few years.
Have you ever tried a t-shirt quilt?
