4 Different ways to make a T Shirt Quilt

Are you a collector of T-shirts with drawers of old clothes you don't wear anymore? Do your kids closets overflow with T-shirts that they haven't worn in years but refuse to give up?

If so, consider giving those T-shirts a new life by putting them together into a T-shirt quilt! Here we're going to list four different ways to create a T-shirt quilt.

Square T-shirt quilt

For the beginning sewers, you can use a simple square cut, sew them together, and simply sew them to the backing. A simple, fast quilt that you can wash and not be afraid to use. For detailed instructions, click here

Hexagon T-shirt quilt

Feel free to try other shapes for your panels. A hexagon will also make an interesting pattern for a T-shirt quilt. Simply download a pattern and follow a tutorial for a hexagon quilt.

Grid T-shirt quilt

If your shirts are of varying sizes, or you have logos and graphics that are of varying sizes, maybe a grid T-shirt quilt is the way to go. This quilt requires a little bit more prep time and some math done on your part, but it could look so amazing when done. Check out this tutorial for step by step instructions!

T-shirt rag quilt

Another option for a T-shirt quilt is to do a rag-style T-shirt quilt. These can be a little more time-consuming compared to the basic T-shirt quilt, but the end result will definitely be worth it. This is a great idea for kids' T-shirt quilts and ones with lots of bright colors to showcase!
