WIP Wednesday…T Shirt Quilt

I don’t know if this counts as a true work-in-progress since I haven’t actually started it yet….but, let’s just call it one, ok?

This is the first time I’ve ever made a T-shirt quilt and I am completely apprehensive about it.  It’s also a commissioned quilt, so there is that much more pressure!!  So far, I’ve pulled out all the T-shirts and separated them into piles….that’s a real step, right?

I’m super scared to start cutting the shirts, but it has to be done.  I’m hoping once I start cutting the shirts and fusing the interfacing, things will start to form better in my head.  I do have a plan, but it’s still a bit hazy….not how I like to work!!

My goal is to make the quilt with the shirts creating a “3D” image like this one.  That might be a little ambitious for my first attempt, but I am not a fan of the quilts that have the shirts all over the place.  I have this issue with order.

Have you made a Tshirt quilt?  Any advice for a newbie?
