I was given the t shirts cut out but not backed...needless to say this was quite a job. Mom did not know about seam allowances either!

Much easier to cut them out after splitting the side seams and adding backing. You probably had to sew thru some of the plastic too. Yikes! Of course the quilt will be treasured. You did a great job!

Well Alex, this was a challenge for me, I am matchy matchy, but with the way the shirts were cut I just had to add borders and sew strips together then cut width. I sewed a few patches on top after quilting and was fairly pleased with the end result.

The quilt looks so good, loved the idea of adding the small patches on top of others.
