T-Shirt Memory Quilt Tutorial and Giveaway!!!

So this quilt has been on my to do list for a long time and I am so excited to finally get to share it!!!   Here's the scoop.  About a year ago my wonderful MIL, Barbara brought up a box of my husbands old High School shirts.  Isn't that cool that she saved them!!!  I put them in a drawer and planned it to be the next project, and then the next, and then the next.  You know how it goes.


Then when I was at Spring Market I popped into the June Tailor booth as they were demoing a T-Shirt ruler.  This totally perked my interest as I knew I still had those T-Shirts sitting in the drawer :)  And it all led to today, finally getting to share this T-Shirt Memory quilt, a special finish for my sweet husband ;)

Okay, so how many of you have one of these on your bucket list??  Well excellent, because I took some pictures on the way to show you just how easy these quilts can be :)  So let's get to it.

To start, you will need a pile of T-Shirts, and then the tools that makes life easy, The June Tailor T-Shirt quilt kit which includes a T-Shirt Transformation Ruler, T-Shirt Interfacing, and a T-Shirt Pressing Cloth :)
 

Grab your first T-Shirt and cut it along the side seams, shoulder seams, and neck seam.


Now you have just the design and it will lie nice and flat.  Smooth all the wrinkles out with your hands.


Now, take your T-Shirt Transformation ruler and lay it over your design.  This is where I decide what size I want to cut the design.  The ruler has 3 different size guides (10 1/2", 12 1/2", and 15 1/2")  and you could cut all your designs square to make them easy to sew together, but I wanted to just cut around each design, so I will use combinations of sizes.  For instance, on this shirt, I decided to use the 12 1/2" guides on the top and bottom and the 15 1/2" guides on the sides.


So before I do any cutting, I want to add some interfacing to the back of the shirt so it doesn't stretch like crazy when I am sewing it.  I decided on 12 1/2" x 15 1/2" rectangle so I will cut a piece of interfacing 1" larger than that so 13 1/2" x 16 1/2".  Now center the interfacing over the wrong side of the T-Shirt and give the interfacing  a super lite press just to stick it in place.  Don't hold it long as you don't want to melt the design on the front of the T-Shirt.


 Now flip the shirt over to the right side and lay your pressing cloth over the shirt design.  Press adhering the interfacing to the shirt and ensuring the safety of the design with the pressing cloth.  I like to press from the front so that I can be sure it is lying completely flat as some of those designs really want to crinkle, especially if they are a bit older and have been crumpled in a box forever ;)


Now, back to your cutting mat.  Lay your ruler over the design once again.  Using the diagonal lines ensure that your design is centered.  I also like to use the gridlines to help me center the design.  Once your ruler is in place you are ready to cut your design.  Since I am using the outside of the ruler on the sides I can simply just cut along the sides of the ruler.


For the top and bottom, simply mark the guidelines in the groves using a water soluble pen.


Then remove the T-Shirt ruler and place a long ruler along the edges of the markings.  Cut along the edge of the ruler.


And your perfectly cut t-shirt design is done.  And with the wonderful T-Shirt interfacing adhered to the back you won't have to worry about your design stretching when you go to sew it into a quilt ;)


Repeat this process for your entire stack of quilts.  Like I said before, I wanted to cut right around the designs, so I used a whole lot of combinations of sizes, for instance, this one uses the 12 1/2" along 3 sides an the 10 1/2" along the left side.


And I even did a few perfect squares in the mix.  Like this 12 1/2" square :)


Now their were a few that because of their small size or super skinny nature that I had to pull out my quilting rulers for.  But I just used the same concepts I had with the t-shirt ruler taking care to line things up well.  They are a little easier to line up as they are smaller ;)


Once you have cut up all your T-Shirts you are ready to start making your quilt top.  First, decide about what size you would like your quilt top.  I went for a nice lap top size of about 60" x 75".  Using a tape measure, mark this on your work surface, either the floor or a design wall ;)


Now play around with your T-Shirt designs until you have a layout that you like.


Once you have a layout in place, do a little mental calculating of where you are going to make squares and how you plan to sew them together.  I  used little pieces of tape to help keep track of these mental caculations.  I plan to sew 1,2,3, & 4 together.  Then do 5,6,7,&8.  Sew 9 to the side of that.  And then 1,2,3,&4 (the top) to 5,6,7,8,&9 (the bottom).


So, now to fill in the holes.  And to do that, we need lots of scrappy goodness!!  I love a good scrap busting project!!  I choose to use 4 color scraps, the ones most used in the T-shirts.


So, staring at grouping number 1, simply start adding around the designs.  Always use a 1/4" seam to add pieces.  This is totally improv piecing.  Don't stress to much about a plan, just add a slab and keep adding until your piece is large enough.  Trim as your go to keep squaring up your design.


And you can work on more than one design at a time.  Since I plan to sew these 2 together, I want to make sure I make them about the same width.  I don't want them to line up perfectly, so I will add big sashing to opposite sides.


And no one says you always have to add a sashing strip.  I threw in a few pieces here and there that were pieced and then added.  Just adds another little scrappy dimension.


And once you have your two pieces about the same width, go ahead and sew them together.


And then, take the new piece to your mat and square it up.  This is super important!!  If you want your quilt to lay flat, be sure and square up each piece when complete.


Now lay your nice piece back in it's designated spot and make sure it is close to the size you planned.  If it isn't add a little more, if not, move on to the next piece.


Just keep adding sashing and bits of piecing to each of your designs, incorporating a mixture of your scraps.  Here I am finished with the units that will make up my "top".  (I split the original 2 into 2 and 3).    So now I just put 2 and 3 together and 4 and 5 together to make 2 rows.  Sew those 2 rows together and then add 1 to the side.


And the top of my quilt top is all done!!  Now I am ready to move onto the bottom pieces.  Just keep sashing, and piecing, adding and trimming and before you know it. . . .


You have a completed quilt top filled with wonderful T-Shirt memories and scrappy goodness!!!


Now to finish your quilt just Baste it, Quilt it, and Bind it.  I know, I make it sound oh so simple.  If you are new to quilting you might find these Video Tutorials on the basics of finishing a quilt helpful :)


I decided to quilt around the T-Shirt designs with a scallop and in the scrappy areas I did this fun design that kind of reminds me of pom-poms.  It is just a back and forth zig-zag in quarter, half, and circles.  Seriously, so much fun to quilt!!


Now just sit back and enjoy your T-Shirt Memory Quilt!!!  The fun thing about this is that my husband loves it because it has memories of High School and I love it because the scrappy goodness has memories of so many other projects I have made.  Double bonus!!!


So that's it.  I hope you have enjoyed the tutorial and I have inspired you to pull out those old T-Shirts and get quilting.  And if you do, I would love to see them in my Flickr Group!!!

And I have one last little thing to help inspire you ;)  The wonderful folks at June Tailor have been so kind as to send me 2 T-Shirt Quilt kits with the ruler, interfacing, and pressing cloth to giveaway to two readers!!!  Yippee Skippee!!!

  47. Oh goodness...we have a million T-shirts here to turn into quilts. Thanks for the post.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Yep! The only problem is that the shirt I want to make a quilt out of (mostly college shirts and shirts from my elementary teaching days) still fit! I still wear them all the time! When I was teaching elementary school, our PTA made up shirts for each classroom with hand drawn faces of each kid in the class. Some of the parents saved each of these shirts (because, you know, kids can actually grow out of their clothes) and made quilts out of them when their kids entered Jr High. I totally want to do that for my kids!

  53. About 6 yrs ago I made one for my husband out of old car tees, to be kept in his car for when we were out & about. That lasted through the summer now it's never left the house! Time to clean out the closet, over flowing with t-shirts & start one to stay in his car. Great use of those shirts that are still in good condition but the grease stains drive me crazy.

  60. Yes we have loads of old t-shirts. My husband was in the Royal Navy so he collected t-shirts from EVERY city/country he went to in his 24 year career. Plus I collected rock concert tees and he collects Hard Rock Cafe shirts ... Sadly, mice ate a few t-shirts out of our collection when we lived in a different house but he still has about 4 FULL suitcases of 'em and all mine are in Canada!

  130. I guess you can say I have a closet full of boxes full of T-shirts. My husband and two sons have saved all their Boy Scout t-shirts hoping that I will make them quilts. That many t-shirts is a little overwhelming for a new quilter like me but I really do want to make the quilts. Thank you! anglanouette at gmail dot com

  132. Wow this is great. My high school was known for having t-shirts for everything. Transfer students made fun of us. I even have a rugby shirt and we didn't even have a rugby team. So of course I have boxes of high school shirts desperate to be a quilt.

  134. I have a box of my late father-in-laws t-shirts that I want to make into a quilt or seven. But I've never done something like this! Your tutorial is helping me overcome my fear of screwing this up! Winning the ruler would be AWESOME!

  137. I only wear tshirts and I buy way too many, but since its the only kind of tops I wear I think it is justified. I also don't throw them away if they shrink, get a grease stain away from the graphic, etc. and have 3 massive ziplock storage bags (the biggest size) full of them as I knew I would either use them for a quilt or at least for rags (or painting shirts). I could definitely use one of these kits to purge my "stash"...and make room to justify buying more tshirts...

  138. I just finished my second t-shirt quilt. I could really use this kit. I have been using the guess an by golly method. I still have at least two more quilts to make.

  140. I love your quilt. I think I need to make a few of these. I have t-shirts galore from both our daughter and son and my husband. His mom also saved a lot of his t-shirts, and when she found out I loved to sew shortly after we married she gave them to me. Then I had no idea what I would do with them, so I folded them and put them all in a box. What a wonderful surprise for all three of them it will be on Christmas morning to have these quilts. Thanks for the great tutorial.

  156. Oh my goodness.... I have so many tshirts that are all quilting or Run for a cure themed and I rarely wear them so have been thinking about making a quilt from them but didn't know where to start. I was actually considering asking a friend to make it for me. Now you have not only inspired me, but given me the step by step directions. What is weird is that I just saw that June Tailor tshirt kit advertised yesterday!
    I follow your blog and never miss a dose of your inspiration. Thank you for being such a Happy Quilter!

  158. My daughter and SIL own a T-shirt print shop so they brought me 2 boxes to make them T shirt quilts. One from their personal collection of favorite shirts and the other of the first shirts they ever printed. I have my work cut out for me as I've never done one but this tutorial is a life saver. Thank you
