Materials List for T Shirt Quilt Class

Mat and Rotary Cutter

Ruler 6 ½ x 24”  

12 ½”or 15 ½” square Omnigrid, if you have one.

Fabric Scissors

Ultra Fine Sharpie

Notebook and Pen


Sewing Machine and ¼” foot

Neutral color thread for piecing

Optional: Painters tape, Dressmakers cloth tape-measure

T shirts to use in the quilt

If you wish to use stabilizer Pellon SF101, minimum 3yds

(It’s the cotton backed one, I don’t use it unless shirts are really   thin but some people feel more comfortable using it

Cotton fabrics for sashing.  Approx 3yds.  2 ½”  pre-cut strips and Jelly rolls work really well.

For sashing I use assorted fabrics for a scrappy, unique look and is a great way to use scraps.  You can use a single or limited color scheme as desired. .  2 ½” pre-cut strips work great.

To make a queen size quilt using 20 blocks surrounded by fabrics, you will need approx 3 yds of fabric for the sashing.
