- 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.
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.
