DIRECTIONS:

No two T-shirt quilts are alike so there&'s not a perfect pattern to follow. This method is simple to follow and allows the motif of each T-shirt to be showcased in a complimentary way. Choose the largest size T-shirt motif and make that the standard size block. Each remaining T-shirt block will be cut in a shape and size that compliments the motif on the shirt; either square, rectangle or a square on-point. Add borders to each T-shirt block until the finished quilt block size measures 15-1/2" square. Blocks are sewn together in rows and rows sewn together to complete the quilt top.

Cutting:
1. Remove sleeves and cut t-shirts at side seams.
2. Following the instructions included with the June TailorĀ® Fusible Interfacing, apply the interfacing to the backs of the t-shirts.
3. Using the June TailorĀ® T-Shirt Transformation Ruler, cut the t-shirt designs in squares, rectangles, or squares on-point.
4. Cut (5) 3" strips for borders.
5. Cut (5) 2-1/2" strips for binding

Making the Blocks
1. Each t-shirt quilt block should measure 15-1/2" square.
2. If your t-shirt is cut to 12-1/2" or 10-1/2" dimensions, add a pieced border to complete the 15-1/2" dimension. These borders can be added to the top and/or bottom, to one side or both sides.
