T-Shirt Quilt in the Making


Hi All!
I’ve been sewing a little - or rather, preparing to sew.  I’m linking my project today with Kelly’s “Needle and Thread Thursday.”  I still haven’t figured out how to make the link work by clicking on the picture so please just click on the link I copied below to see what others are doing on Thursday.





Here’s a photo of the t-shirts I’ve cut up.  I’ve made all 17 inch x 17 just to make sure I have enough. I’ll cut them down to the size needed after I iron them to the interfacing.  These are 20 cut-up t-shirts.

And, of course, I saved many scraps in case they’re needed and saved some for dusting and cleaning rags and still, I have this trash can full of scraps.


So, I’m ready to get started on that but I needed a break from t-shirts so made this pincushion for my swap partner in a pincushion swap.  My partner likes crazy quilting so...


That is all.

You have got heaps of T shirts there so plenty of choice. It's a good way to have a clean up as well as get a new quilt.

Lovely your pretty little pincushion....

I have never tried a T-shirt quilt, though I have enough Scouting shirts to wear a different one every day for at least a year!
