    Sophisticated T-shirt quilt?

    Good evening,

    I have maybe 12-15 T-shirt’s that is like to use to make a quilt, although I’m not really looking for big, giant 10x10 squares— I’m hoping more for an actual quilt patters that I could use some of the shirt/patterns in the piecework. This sounds silly, but, hopefully a more “sophisticated” take on a T-shirt quilt. With a series of fabric that could carry the overall look of the quilt with the T-shirts’ just sprinkled throughout. But I’m struggling to find something that it’s very bold and square and childish, for lack of a better word.

    I would be very, very grateful for any suggestions or comments anyone would be willing to offer.

    I think any block that you could use the T shirt as a center square. Like a star block or churn dash would work

          I made one for a friend that turned out really well. I picked out just the emblem on the shirt, all of varying sizes, cut out and interfaced those. I then used those pieces as kind of "the center square" of a quilt block that I just improvised - put flying geese around it, turned it into a log cabin, all kinds of things. These blocks ended up being of various sizes. Some of the shirts had big "pictures" so on a few of them, I cut them up and made several blocks, or in one case, had a big picture that I cut into 9 pieces, scrambled them up and turned them into a 9 patch with sashings around each one. Lay out all the blocks, add sashings of a background color to make them all the same size, and sew it together. I had a lot of fun with it - was not a particularly fast project, but one that I was quite proud of. If I can figure out how to add a picture, I will do that.

            It sounds cool, I also have some unnecessary T-shirts lying around, I'll have to try to do the same as you. Since I recently ordered the best heat press machine in order to start my business of printing clothes. My first attempts at applying prints were unsuccessful, so I still have a lot of unnecessary t-shirts. When I watched the video on YouTube, everything looked quite simple, but in fact, at the first attempts, you can easily make a mistake and make the drawing crooked and low-quality. After a couple of weeks, I was already starting to do a great job, which is very good because I don't have to think out what to do with ruined t-shirts anymore.
