DAY 1 : T-SHIRT RAG QUILT – PICK OUT YOUR T-SHIRTS

DAY 1 : T-SHIRT RAG QUILT – PICK OUT YOUR T-SHIRTS

Day 1 of 10: Select your shirts. Could be a theme. Mine are the Eskimo Joe’s Shirts from Stillwater, Oklahoma. Maybe yours would be, football, baseball, drill team, dance team, soccer, Concerts, 5K runs, lots to choose from.

Day 1 : Pick T-Shirts for your quilt

Other things to consider.

  • How large do you want your final quilt to be? How many T-shirts will you need?
    • King – 30 – 56
    • Queen – 25 – 42
    • Twin – 16 – 25
    • Lap Throw – 9 or 12
    • Large Lap Throw – 12 – 16
  • If the material is super stretchy, you might want to use iron interfacing to stabilise the fabric after cutting out your square.
  • Take a picture, move the shirts around in different placements. Note if you have a design on the front and the back.

A couple of my shirts have designs on both the front and the back.  So after I separate the front from the back, I’ll do more t-shirt placement to figure out if I need more shirts.

Pick out your shirts.  Can be theme based, as I’m doing here.  Many different styles of shirts from Eskimo Joes from Stillwater Oklahoma.
