Oh no! It's T-shirt Quilt time (again!)

 Yep..it's that time again.  Our grandson, Nick, is graduating this year so grandma needs to get busy on his T-shirt quilt!  This will be my last one for grand kids!  They'll have all graduated from high school...thank goodness and I'm not making any for when they graduate from college!  Enough for me.  







First step is sorting through all the T's my DIL gave me.  




Next up is fusing interfacing on the back of each T after I cut away the sleeves, etc.




Now to square them up to size...well, I should say sizes...not all are large and some are larger due to all the writing on them.










Between football, Lacrosse and different events Nick has been in or attended, I think he'll have a good mix of T's.  Now to determine the layout...I'm thinking of something similar to attic  window just to be different for a t shirt quilt.

And I get to go fabric shopping for the border and backing!

  1. It is going to be a treasured keepsake! I am in the mist of making a t-shirt quilt for a relative of a friend I work with. I really like making t-shirt quilts and this will be around number 32. I have to do some improv piecing on this one since I received the t-shirts already cut up - ugh! I will make it work. :)

  3. That's so nice that you make t-shirt quilts for the kids. I've never made one, even though I've saved t-shirts.
