As part of my t-shirt quilt class I offer my longarming services at a discount for taking my class. All of my students took me up on this offer. So during our first Saturday class I spent quite a bit of time figuring measurements and telling the ladies how many yards of backing fabric and batting to buy. My normal quilt intake is that I quilt in the order that I receive the quilts. When I received all the quilts on the same day I stuck with that same way of doing things.
Scroll through to see all the different t-shirt quilts that were made and how they look after they were quilted. Enjoy!

|A close up of the previous picture. There are actually 3 shirts that make this block up and we appliqued the K-State Proud shirt to the shadow border to make it have the wavy look.|
|I'm really proud of this shirt. My quilting machine didn't balk once and going through 3 layers of interfacing, 4 layers of tshirt material and a layer of satin letter material all at once on the opening of the shirt.|
|Here's the backside of the humongous tshirt quilt. I worried a little about the tshirts lining up and quilting through the denim but it was smooth as a whistle.|
