T-Shirt Memory Quilt
If you have a pile of old t-shirts that your kids have grown out of.
Then I have a great way to cherish some memories and keep warm at the same time.
With this lovely
homemade Memory Quilt.
Starting with a
pile of old t-shirts
on the Left.
I am using this hard cover 'A4' book
as a template.
Tracing around the book with
a soft graphite pencil.
I then cut out the rectangle
and place it on the pile to my right.
I lay them out in a pattern that I like.
with no two alike colours touching.
Making sure I have enough pieces
to make it double sided.
Gathering up the first row in order.
With the correct sides facing each other I then clamp them with small bulldog clips.
Keeping the corners and edges aligned.
Mark in 1.5cm from each edge.
I am doing a 1.5cm seam allowance
As well as starting and stopping my stitches
1.5cm in, on my marker lines.
Being sure to back stitch, at the beginning and end of each panel.
Cut all loose threads as you go.
Open it up.
Lay the next panel on top.
Align, clamp and continue the process over.
Once the first row is complete, flip it over and iron the seams apart.
Repeat this process for the remaining rows.
I numbered each row to prevent any mix up.
Unravel each row and lay them back into position.
It’s now time to sew all of our rows together.
With the good sides facing each other.
I clamp the edges together, keeping all the opposite seams matched up to each other.
Sewing a 1.5cm seam allowance
Iron open the seams.
Flip it over and repeat for the
next row of panels.
Now that I have 2 of these made.
One for the front and one for the back.
It’s time to lay them together,
with the good sides facing in.
Matching all seams and corners. I clamp the entire perimeter of the quilt.
Sew a 1.5cm seam around the entire quilt.
Cut diagonally across each corner,
to minimize bulk.
Undo the buttons on one of the panels, so you can reach trough and grab the good sides.
Keep pulling it through until it is all the right way.
Clamp then sew a top stitch
around the perimeter.
I run pins along the center seams, carefully matching them up with the underside seams
and cross sections.
I then double top stitch along all the seams running the width of the quilt. But not the length.
The boys love having a quilt made of their favorite shirts from over the years.
And there a so many lovely memories that are brought back from looking over it.
They have been keeping their special Lego pieces
in the pockets of the quilt ♥
I have more sewing projects
over on YouTube.
And I would love to have you there ♥
