Well, life got in the way (as usual) and I'm now ready to return to this project and I want to share the process with you! If you have a collection of t-shirts or memory fabric pieces like handkerchiefs, napkins, or even just your favorite quilting fabrics, now is the time to pull them all out and make a fantastic quilt!

I'm piecing this quilt in big 18 inch t-shirt blocks, but quilting a 16 inch square within using my tried and true Quilt-As-You-Go method.

Writing a materials list for a pattern like this is a bit tricky. For one thing, we will all be using different garments, which are different sizes and shapes. So if you're worried about having enough fabric for your block fronts, just get 3 yards and you should have plenty.
Or you can just make a mishmash of multi-colors, scraps, and orphan blocks like mine!
I don't think there's a single way to approach this, so jump in when you want, however you'd like, and let's have fun making a memory quilt together. Share your progress and post questions either here or on the Leah Day Quilting Facebook Group.
Now for the quilt along part - each week I will quilt one of my tshirt blocks using a combination of walking foot and free motion style quilting. Make sure to swing by every Wednesday to find a new video on walking foot quilting posted to this page.
Now I'd love to hear what you think of this new t-shirt quilt along! Share this fun project with your friends so everyone can join in the fun and learn loads about quilting and make an awesome quilt at the same time!
Let's go quilt,
