T-Shirt Quilt

My friend wanted to make a t-shirt quilt from her decade of Old Navy Flag Tee's. What a great idea right?! She has 1999 all the way to 2009. There are a total of 12 blocks, with one blank one for her to write/embroider names of her family members. She and I got together every Wednesday with the help of her cute little 14 mos old daughter to make this little beauty. We interfaced all the logo areas with lightweight fusible interfacing. The blocks are all cut to 12 1/2" with a 2" (finished) sashing. We'll be building the back very soon from extra border + sashing fabrics. This is the second quilt she's ever made and I think its turning out awesome.

I've got a stash of t-shirts saved from my kids for exactly this reason! When the time comes to make the quilt, I may be bugging you if I need some instructions!

Even though stitch'T loves to make T-shirt quilts, we would be happy to walk anyone through the steps to make a T-shirt quilt for themselves.
