The author offers a variety of tips and techniques in working with t-shirts, including how to incorporate curves. But the best part of this book is the number of imaginative settings beyond the typical Nine-Patch layout. Of particular note are the asymmetrical block designs.

If you ever wanted to make a t-shirt quilt, but wanted something different than just the "same ole basic t-shirt quilt" than you'll want this book. There are a lot of great ideas for layouts included in this book. Several of them use pre-cuts, such as 5" charm squares and 2-1/2" strips. The pre-cuts will definitely speed up the process of making the quilt. There are also several hints and how-to's on what to do with odd shaped pieces taken from t-shirts, pieces too small for a block, finishing touches, alternative bindings, and quilting techniques.
