Sew a T-Shirt Quilt: Easy T-Shirt Quilt Tutorial

Sometimes a battered t-shirt just can't be recycled back into clothing, but it's so hard to chuck those old memories in the trash. A t-shirt is often more than an article of clothing. T-shirts can say what we've done, where it all went down, and sometimes even bear the Sharpie signatures of who was there with us.

Instead of tossing those T's, consider turning the logo areas into quilt blocks. It's easy to join together these large squares to create a memory quilt that can last a lifetime. I'll show you how.

What you'll need:

  • 8-16 old t-shirts
  • Scissors
  • (optional) rotary cutter and mat
  • sewing machine or sewing kit
  • Iron and ironing board
  • Iron-on interfacing
  • 1/2 yard of coordinating fabric for trimming

Once you've got your materials, let's get started.
