Prolific quilter and author, Linda Causee, shares her ideas for turning your favorite t-shirts into commemorative quilts to celebrate all the concerts you’ve seen, marathons you’ve walked, places you’ve traveled or teams you root for.

 

Linda shows you how to prepare each t-shirt with fusible interfacing to prevent stretching. There are seven different quilt patterns to choose from, including some with traditional quilt blocks mixed in with the t-shirt blocks. She offers both regular and foundation piecing options, as well as stitch-and-flip and strip piecing. Linda’s designs show off novelty prints, batiks and solids that complement the specific types of t-shirts. She has a few bonus patterns to take some of the quilts from the wall to the bed, and quiltmaking basics are included in the back of the book.

 

I love the simple design of the family quilt (page 28), because you can include shirts of all sizes, from baby to kid to adult, by framing each t-shirt block with varied-width strips. The sports team quilt (page 6) is also super cute with its little cornerstone blocks made with baseball fabric. I think it’s a great gift idea for the fan who collects shirts from every player, every championship, and every version of the team logo…like my brother! How many t-shirts does a guy really need hanging in his closet, anyway?

I have made several T-shirt Quilts but I'm not sure If I did them right. IF YOU COULD SEND IT TO MY nOOK AS A fREE e-BOOK THAT WOULD BE GREAT. tHANK YOU.

I'm sorry, Billiestembridge, but any eBook purchases will have to be made through Leisure Arts--you might have better luck on their website! Happy quilting!
