t-shirts: If you are planning on using t-shirts in your quilt, remember that the finished squares are 10" x 10" so if there are emblems on the t-shirts that are larger than this size they will not be fully included. I will be thoughtful in picking out the part or parts that tell the best story about the t-shirt.

include large pieces of fabric: tender threads would like each quilt top, back and binding to be made out of 100% recycled materials. This means that no new fabrics will be purchased for the quilt (other than the cotton interior batting). If you can, include old blankets, sheets or tablecloths.
