How to Make a Sweatshirt Quilt

Pin the three layers together every few inches throughout the entire area of the quilt.

Baste the three layers together with large basting stitches.

Hand-stitch the quilting pattern in the ditches of the quilt top, or the indentations where the top blocks were sewn together.

Create a long binding strip by sewing together all of the excess sweatshirt material.

Bind off the edges of the sweatshirt quilt with the binding strip in the binding technique of your choice.

If you choose to do the quilting with a machine, make sure you use a walking foot, which can handle the thick material.

Try using the sweatshirts inside-out if you dont mind leaving out logos. The fuzziness will make the quilt a favorite.
