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.
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.
