I've never made one - but I'm contemplating doing one. Lots of ideas online at http://www.straw.com/quilting/articles/teequilts.html I understand that stabilizing the shirts is very important so the cut edges don't stretch. Good luck!

I have made many sports quilts out of t-shirts...I also stablize them...I also applique them onto background fabric...cut different shapes around the design...stablize than applique...use all sizes of lattice to fit the pieces together. It's labor intensive and always measuring but the end quilt is very unusual in a good way.

There is a pattern called Bee Unique T-Shirt Quit from The Surrogate Stitcher and the book A Scrapbook You can Sleep Under by Lauren Kingsland. Both give ideas on how to make a t-shirt quilt and a variety of layouts. I have made several and strongly advise stabilizing the shirts before cutting them to the size you want to use; you can make a rough cut of the shirt first but stabilize it before you make the final cuts. And use a fusible stabilizer for knits. Good luck; they are great fun.
