Tis the Season for Graduation T-shirt Quilts

Posted on

This is the time of year I get lots of tshirt quilts in to make for graduation gifts. First I cut out all the shirts and stabilize them with non woven fusible interfacing. Next, I start arranging the shirts on my design wall to get a good balance of color.

I always so paranoid that I’m going to screw up the spelling on an embroidered design. Spelling was always my worst subject and embroidery machines don’t have spell check! 🙂embroidery center block tshirt quilt
