Preserve Those Memories in a Soft Warm Quilt!

Tee shirts make soft and cuddly quilts and are relatively easy to work with. Plus, a quilt is perfect for preserving those special shirts and memories.





However, there are a few things to know before tackling a tee shirt quilt. In the following video Jody Sanders shares 10 tips for turning tee shirts into a quilt.

She provides tips for designing the quilt using differently sized tee shirt motifs. Plus she shows how to cut a tee shirt apart and how to use a stabilizer (and what kind) to make construction easier.

In the next video Linda provides additional tips. She goes into more depth about stabilizers, which is helpful information for creating a soft quilt that drapes nicely.

While it’s simple to create a design for a tee shirt quilt based on the shirt motifs, it’s helpful to look through a few patterns for construction ideas.
