Let's make a T-shirt Quilt

 
Step 1 - it is best to have a "theme" for your t-shirt quilt . The theme I will be using is Rhythmic Gymnastics. I picked out 12 t-shirts of Jessica's favorite and most memorable meets.  I also cut her name off of her team jackets through out the years and picked a color theme of pink, blue, and purple.

Cut 12 OR14 inch squares. (depending on how big your print on the t-shirts are) AND cut as many squares as you will need - one for each t-shirt

Cut around the print on your T-shirt  as shown in this photo.

Pin one cut out T-shirt print on the pretty side or right side of one of your squares.

Zigzag stitch around the edge of the T-shirt print as shown in this picture.

Do this to ALL of your T-shirts.

If you find that the t-shirt is bulking when you sew and making bumps, you can add a 100% cotton fabric underneath the t-shirt. Cut it out the same as the t-shirt. The cotton fabric will stop the knit t-shirt from moving when you sew.

 

Step 2 - Arrange your squares on the floor in order of how you would like them to be on the quilt.
Step 3 - Take 2  squares that are side by side from your arrangement on the floor. Pin them pretty sides together.  Sew straight stitch down one side as shown in the picture to the right. Do this to all of your pairs on the right.  Once they are all done pin the square on the right to the center square.  Sew that seam straight stitch also.

You should now have 4 rows of 3 squares sewn together.

 

  Step 4 - Sew your rows together matching seams.

 

T-Shirt Quilts are such a great way to hold onto memories and special events. It is a quilt made from T-shirts from special times or places in your life like; athletic events, schools, bands, or favorite children's wear.  Your memory T-shirt quilt has unlimited possibilities.

 Besides adding the logo on the T-shirt you can add pocket art, sleeve art, or small logos like ones name that was on a sports school jacket. Below is free instructions on how to make a T-shirt quilt.
