|Nick's T-shirt quilt|
Nick is on the left and my older son is on the right. I really had a good time making this quilt. I designed the layout based on helps from the book "You Did What with my T-shirts?" by Judy Bobbitt and Katie Reed. The book suggested putting a border around every t-shirt to get them all to a uniform size. I used a stripe cut at 1" for the first border around each t-shirt then the "background" fabric around that to get each shirt to about 20.5". There is one long narrow shirt in each vertical row. Those finished at 11 x 20". What I like about this is that the T-shirts appear to float on the background; there are seams inbetween in the red fabric.
