Make Tee Shirt Quilts with All Those Tee Shirts!

January 20, 2010 § 1 Comment

Now is the time to start making a tee shirt quilt, if you are planning to give one as a gift for graduation or going to college.

The process takes  hours, but the resulting quilt is a one-of-a-kind keepsake memory quilt.

I wrote a book, “Fabulous Tee Shirt Quilts” a few years ago, and it has guided people, both quilters and non-quilters, through the process.  The instructions in the book make the process as easy as is possible, with a finished quilt that will be loved and appreciated by the recipient.

 

 

“Fabulous Tee Shirt Quilts” is available on Amazon and at your quilt shop.
