Choose your t-shirts. Purchase your pattern book at the shop. The pattern we are using will take 12 or 16 t-shirts depending on the size of the t-shirts and the size of the quilt you wish to make. See the chart in the book for sizes and supplies. Wash and dry your t-shirts. No softeners in washer or dryer.
Split the t-shirt down the middle of the back of the t-shirt if only using the front of the t-shirt. If you are using the front and the back, split the t-shirt under the arm. Layout a cut t-shirt. Using the t-shirt ruler, lay your t-shirt ruler over the graphics and determine what you want to show on the quilt. For this design you want your t-shirts to all be the same size. So if you have a t-shirt that is larger than the rest that you want to use in your quilt, cut the rest of the shirts the same size.
You will need ? yard fusible stabilizer per shirt. Cut your stabilizer 1? larger than your cut t-shirt on all sides. Using a t-shirt pressing sheet (works best), place the t-shirt on the ironing board upside down with the stabilizer centered over it and the t-shirt pressing sheet on top of that. Following the directions on the stabilizer package, press the stabilizer to the t-shirt. Never iron directly on the front of the t-shirt, as the graphics will melt and distort and mess up your iron.
Do this with ALL of your chosen t-shirts prior to class!
