The T-shirt Quilt is a very popular quilt with young people and people that collect t-shirts.
This is what I suggest: use solids for (optional frames); black/dark for shadow; your background can be anything you choose.
I will show you how to debone your t-shirts, iron on fusible interfacing and cutting your t-shirt for your block.
You’re only making one easy block; putting (optional) frame around it; adding shadow frame; putting rows together with sashing. It’s simple but time consuming. You can actually make a pillow from your t-shirt block, a bed runner with 4-5 t-shirts or a quilt with 9-12 t-shirts. I will teach you the process and you take it from there. Normally students get 2 blocks done in class. I look forward to meeting each of you & teaching you this process!
