I found this book online one day and fell in love with this type of t-shirt quilt. It's not your standard 12 t-shirts all lined up nicely in a quilt. I love the variety and the number of t-shirts that you can incorporate in the quilt. I was pleasantly pleased with they way Andrea T. Funk explains the entire process of making a t-shirt quilt. She does a wonderful job describing in detail each step from picking out the t-shirts or non standard shirts all the way to different quilting options. I believe even someone new to sewing could put this quilt together after reading this book. Andrea also has a set of rulers that I highly recommend buying with the book. The rulers are cut from plexiglass with a laser and they have a nice smooth lip on them. I had decided to be frugal and have a big hardware store cut my rulers for me with the measurements that Andrea gives in the book. The plexiglass cuts were very jagged and would have ruined my rotary cutter blade within seconds of attempting to cut. To save yourself time and money I highly recommend you purchase the rulers with the book. You can purchase her book and rulers on her website.
*Special Note: I did use interfacing on my t-shirts because I wanted to quilt it on my home machine.
