My friend asked me if I knew how to make a t-shirt quilt. I told her I have made a quilt with my husband's old boxers, but never t-shirts. I said I would love the challenge though.
|The quilt I made my husband out of his old boxers. :P|
I met up with her 1 1/2 weeks ago and she handed me a large bag of old t-shirts. I was excited to get started, but worried about ruining all of her shirts by cutting them up. I had a quilting friend tell me that they are like putting together a puzzle because every shirt isn't the exact same size and the print can throw things off too. I understood what she was talking about once I cut them up. It was going to be like Tetris, which actually was my favorite video game ever! And so the fun of putting the t-shirt quilt puzzle together has begun. I really am having fun with this. Here is what I have done so far. To be continued...
|Don't mind the mess...And I have noticed I need to vacuum. But that will have to wait until I finish the more important stuff, sewing!|
|I think I like this layout. I also saved some tags of the shirts for fun embellishment.|
|After putting the sides on I think one more bottom border with these 3 shirts will finish the quilt off perfectly!|
|Finished! Took about 10 hours total to make. It was fun figuring out how to put it all together.|
