I made this for the first swap I ran, the Theme Box Swap. One side is Star Wars and the reverse side is a modge podge of different tee shirts. It took about a week to make, hours of sewing! The pictures were taken by LanySmiles. I loved how it turned out and would love to make another quilt sometime for myself Smiley

I probably will not continue using tee shirts as much as I enjoy the look of them, stitching the jersey cotton is a huge pain, it pulls, stretches, and is generally a hassle. ):

good job! I love the star wars side. I know what you mean about working with jersey, but if use iron on interfacing on the back before you start cutting and sewing it makes it way eaiser to work with.

How fun! I can't quite tell, did you do a rag quilt method, where the seams are on the outside?

That I did. Smiley I really like the look of the seams being inside, more steam line. But it felt cozier with them out
