Preserving 4th of July Memories with a T-Shirt Quilt

We Carry
by Sara Snuggerud in Sewing Tips

T-Shirts are still one of the easiest way to celebrate an occasion by drawing everyone together with a cohesive look. But what do you do with all those T-shirts after the event? 

Make a T-Shirt quilt!

In honor of celebrating America’s birthday, Sara made this Patriotic T-Shirt quilt while filming her popular Craftsy class “T-Shirt Quilts: Start to Finish”. With thousands of enrolled students in her class to date, she has had to opportunity to assist in answering online questions for T-Shirt quilt makers around the world. 

What started as a pile of T-Shirts…


Turned into a keepsake quilt!

Wether the T-Shirts came from yearly motorcycle rides to Sturgis, SD, a child’s youth spent in soccer or annual Breast Cancer 5K run, preserving those T-Shirts into a T-Shirt quilt is a very popular project.

Even for non-sewers, Sara’s T-Shirt Craftsy class became an instant success because of her NO MATH METHOD of getting all the miss-matched T-Shirts to a usable size without needing a calculator. From cutting and interfacing the T-Shirts to sewing them all today, Sara’s complete T-Shirt quilt class answers every question.

She even covers the common question of “how do I quilt a T-Shirt quilt when I’m done?”
