So, I have 26 tshirts of some amount of sentimental value, seven of which there are things on both sides I want to use, that I'd like to turn into a quilt. Any tips or tutorials anyone can share? I've never made a quilt before o.o

edit wait, possibly 27, jsut found another in the bottom of the bin I was using for them. Don't want to recount >_<

Those two links are great.  I just finished a t shirt quilt yesterday and basically followed those directions.  I bought a square template the size I needed to cut my tshirts to so I didn't have to think about it.  I also backed it with fleece and used my machine to "tie" it.  No sashing or borders, just make sure your corners line up if you don't use sashing.

I definitely recommend some kind of fusible stabilizer, because sewing a stretchy thing to another stretchy thing can be a real bitch.

This is what I did with my fraternity shirts:


I took a white flat sheet- and safety pinned the shirts to it- whole- I didn't cut them unless I needed to. I didn't use interfacing either. If I do this again I would probably cut the back part of the t-shirt off and still use the flat sheet as a base. I sewed them all down and framed and backed the sucker in fleece- this is one heavy quilt... if I do another one I'll pick a lighter fabric for the back. it's super cozy warm though!

I like the quilts on Too Cool T-shirt Quilts =D
