  • D.I.Y.: T-Shirt Quiltsstack of colorful folded t-shirts

    Last year, I watched a public television show where the host was visiting a t-shirt quilt making company that got a zero waste rating.  People would send in their t-shirt for a fee to be made into a quilt.  The left over fabric because with any sewing project there is always leftover fabric is recycled into a type of tanbark for children's playgrounds. I thought to myself I could make a t-shirt quilt.  During this year's spring cleaning, I discovered that I had three drawers full of t-shirts that I don't wear that I could easily up-cycle into a quilt.
