If you are among those who are sentimental about throwing away your favorite T-shirts, then one of the ways of keeping it for a longer time is to make a quilt out of it. You need not worry about the patterns or designs they can be done the way you want, complex or straightforward. The technique for sewing a T-shirt quilt is slightly different from the normal one.
But before you start out with this unique designed quilts, there are a few things to consider.
● The number of T-shirts that you have for this project
● Size of the Tshirt and the size of the quilt you want to sew
● Are you planning to sash the quilt and if yes what is the purpose to do it. You can also make the quilt larger by using borders if the goal of uses sashing is to make it big.?
● Are the designs on the T-shirt all of the same size, even they are not, you can make a different pattern out of it.?
Step1: Take a washed and dried T-shirt and using a scissor cut the front panel, remove all the other parts and keep only the panel. Do the same to all the other T-shirts you are using to make this quilt.
Step 2: Keep the panels which are of the same sie side by side on a surface which is flat, check if the pattern looks ok to your eyes and start sewing then in rows.
Step 3: Interfacing should be done so that it fits the panels.
Step 4: It is now time to add some sashing or any patchwork to the panels.
Step 5: Once you are done with the front of the quilt, the rest of the process is the same as other quilts that you do. But one thing to note is that you may find it difficult to sew it by hand, so better to use a sewing machine to do the stitching.
