I knew I wanted to make my son a t-shirt quilt, so I saved some of his t-shirts over the years. When I started laying them out, I realized I had more than I needed. I also realized that I had several West Virginia t-shirts. We are avid Mountaineer fans. My husband and I both went to WVU. During the time I was designing this quilt I started becoming interested in the quilt as you go method. I decided that if I used this method, I would be able to use all the t-shirts and my son could have a reversible quilt. He could change the look in his dorm room just by flipping his quilt to the other side. Also I would be able to do the quilting in smaller increments and not have to deal with the weight of the entire quilt. I found a great video by the Gourmet Quilter, (that I will link to later) that taught me how I could join my quilted t-shirt blocks together.
Since I made this quilt before I started my blog, I’m afraid I can’t go back and take pictures of each step. So hopefully with a little instruction, and some help from the Gourmet Quilter’s Video, you will be able to make one of your own.
I do receive a small percentage if you buy your non-stick mat, ruler or rotary cutter from the links above. I added the links for your convenience and you can feel free to purchase from any venue.
