|Quilt design layout|
A few months ago I had someone come to me for their second t-shirt quilt. They had won the previous on that I donated to a raffle/auction. When her other son saw the finished project, he decided that he wanted one also.
|Finished top pinned to fleece backing|
Her son and her made up a layout and sent me the photo. When she dropped off the shirts, we had to tweak it a little because of the fact that one of them was a polo shirt which isn't as easy to use in this quilt.
|Trimming the backing|
I took part the shirts, pieced the two squares that needed to be done. I then stabilized everything and cut them to size. Sewed them with a 1/2 inch seam allowance and pressed all the seams open. Then I pinned it to the fleece backing and trimmed it to size. I stitched around, leaving an opening for turning. Turned it right side out, and stitched close to the edge all around. I did small crosses on in the ditch stitches at all the corners.
Her son was happy with his new blanket. Is your child the next one? I can teach you how to make your own or I can do it for you. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
