I used a queen size flat sheet. I didn't use batting, because after adding the strips of denin for sashing and stabilizer to each t-shirt it was pretty heavy.

Great quilt! What did you use as your backing? You could make this Ruffle Skirt with your leftover t-shirt pieces. Or how about a ruffled beach bag?

Thank you. I purchased the majority of the tees' at the local Goodwill, because it was a gift and I couldn't go take all of his shirts. 16-18 were purchased and they averaged $1.50 ea with coupons and figuring out which days things were half price. The hard part was the shirts were in great condition, I hated to cut them up.

I love this quilt! I made one a few years back with my husband's old t-shirts. The problem I found was that he would wear them out to the point where I couldn't use them. Gotta snag them before that happens, but still let him where them enough to be happy hehehe. Great job!
