Hey there ladies! I am new to quilting, saw a tshirt quilt tutorial or two around here and thought "hey I should do that!" That was four years ago, when I cut up a bunch of shirts and didn't know what I was doing. Two house moves later, I finally found everything and finished the darn thing! It was a labor of love. When I cut up my shirts, I wasn't thinking (or reading) and didn't put any interfacing on them. My squares came out wonky and I got frustrated and stopped for a year.
Took a trip to the fabric store with the gentleman, and he picked out this flannel skully tie-dyed fabric that works wonderfully! Had some suggestions from some of my crafty friends on batting and finishing, and now I'm done! I did the mitered corners for the binding an while it is wonky in some places, I love it. Some of the squares might be crooked/different sizes, but I think I did pretty good for quilting for the first time EVER.
It's queen sized and very comfy. 18x18 squares with 2" borders all around. Each corner of the square on the front has been tied with blue embroidery thread. I was going to do the entire back the same way, but I decided to save a bunch of shirts for another project I'll hopefully work on soon.
Hope you ladies like it!
