Making a T.Shirt Quilt


T.Shirts were originally designed to be worn as undershirts or singlets during the Spanish American War in 1898 and were particularly used by navy marines whose role it was to perform physical labour. They would discard their collared shirts to save them from getting soiled. T.Shirts remained as underclothes until the beginning of the 1950’s when Marlon Brando wore a T.Shirt in the movie A Street Car Named Desire.

T.Shirts have become the “cool” item of clothing since then and really nothing much has changed. Some T.Shirts have some great slogans on them, some a little risqué, but these shirts are loved by those who wear them and a natural progression after the T.Shirt has had it, is to make a quilt from the much loved T.Shirts.

I’ve been surfing and found the following sites that give some good instructions and photos and in some cases, video tutorials for you. Have fun!
