Sometimes I dream of T-shirt quilts, knit patchwork, and knit-fabric softness! Using knit fabrics in quilts can work, and this pattern will show you how. Tee: The Knit Quilt Primer Pattern is specifically written for knit fabrics, but it can work with wovens too! Pattern features 3 quilt versions of varying complexity with multiple size options for each.
Uses fabric from Carolyn’s Blake cotton jersey collection, as well as Friedlander and Friedlander Lawn for some of the bindings and backings.
