Abby’s T-Shirt quilt
Abby from Orange Peel Sews made this quilt for a customer. Her Etsy store is https://www.etsy.com/shop/orangepeel
Her customer sent her a variety of different types of clothing...even a wedding vail, and Abby did a beautiful job. Because of the textures and dimensional blocks, we decided a freehand stipple design would be best for the quilting. It’s fun to do the quilting design I was taught in the very beginning of my quilting career. It’s timeless.
I used a white Perma Core thread from A&E and it’s a 30 Tex. I also used my favorite Winline 8020 cotton poly blend batting.
I love that Abby cut up some of the big shirts in half and laid them out beside each other, it’s a great way to get those big logos in the smaller 8” or 9” blocks.
T-shirt quilts should be stablized with an apparel interfacing, so there is no stretch as you’re sewing or quilting. Here is a link with the details for the interfacing I used on a t-shirt quilt I made: https://www.quiltingit.com/blog/2018/3/26/t-shirt-quilt-a-first-for-me
