How to Make a T-Shirt Quilt

  1. Take your first shirt and cut all the way up one side to the armhole. Cut from the sleeve in to the armpit. Cut your top from the sleve to the neck end, and repeat this process with the other side of your shirt.

  2. Measure the designs on your shirt to decide what your block size for your quilt will be.

  3. Cut your pieces of fusable interfacing slightly larger than your shirt size.

  4. Use your press cloth, or an old dishtowel and place it over the interfacing. Then fuse the interfacing in place using an iron.

  5. Measure off and cut your blocks using your ruler and rotary cutter.

  6. Repeat with all your shirts until you have enough blocks to make the size quilt you would like.

  7. Line up your blocks to decide what pattern you would like them in, and sew your blocks into rows.

  8. Put two blocks that will be next to each other right side together, line up the edge you are going to sew, and sew from one end to the other.

    Tip: Any consistent seam will keep your quilt square.

  9. Repeat this process to make all of your rows. 

  10. To stitch your rows together, press your seems to one side. 

  11. Place one row on top of the other facing each other, match up your edges and your seems, and pin your seems in place, place under your machine and sew across.

    Tip: DO NOT sew over the pin it will ruin your machine.

  12. Create your border to help your quilt become more square and stitch those on.

  13. Quilt and bind your t-shirt quilt and you are good to go!
