Your collection of shirts are cut in 13x13" squares and either layered with flannel and the back of the shirt or lined with a flannel fabric of your choice. The edges of the shirts are sew together with the seams out and then snipped to create a fringed "raggy" look after it is washed. This is a very fun look and most economical option at only $7/square to produce. The other advantage to this quilt is that can have squares added to it over time as you collect more shirts.
A block quilt is one that your shirts are cut and backed with a special stabilizer to keep the shirts flat and square that they can be sewn together or lined with a border. Borders can be used to define each shirt into frames (left) or to make a smaller number of shirts into a larger quilt (like below). These quilts can be backed with a super cozy fleece or with a fun patterned cotton fabric.
Preserve great memories of loved ones or events by turning shirts, blankets, or other pieces of apparel into throw pillows which can turn keepsakes into a useful or decorative accent to keeps your memories alive. I have had people bring me many things like afghans, t-shirts, PJ pants, jeans and more to turn into lovely memoirs. Some can even have a poem, saying or name embroidered on them to personalize them even more.
Whether you've purposefully collected those special articles of clothing over the past several years or have special items from a loved one that you can't bear to get rid of don't keep them hidden away in plastic bag a closet or the basement where no one can see them and appreciate them. The Unlimited Stitch can help re-purposed that special collection into a useful and precious quilt or pillow that can be given as a gift for a special occasion or for daily rememberance of a loved one.
Here is an example of a raggy style quilt that was purposefully made to use the backs of the shirts because his number on the back was how old the boy was that season in soccer.
