Saturday progress on the current t-shirt quilt, don't you just love how the black sashing makes the colors POP!

All rows together, next stop long sashing between rows, then borders.

Small 1/2" sashing on this one - the size of the sashing is directly related to how many shirts you are working with. This t-shirt quilt has 70 shirts, so thin strips of sashing. Also with so many shirts they are cut pretty close, and it is still going to be a large quilt.

If you only had say 20 shirts you could do a 4 x 5 layout with wider sashing, maybe a print fabric to tie them all together. Hmm... maybe I should do a tutorial on how to make a t-shirt quilt while it is fresh on my mind :)
