There are two major styles of T-Shirt quilts. What I refer to as 'Order' and 'Chaos'. OK, that seems like an extreme comparison, but let's look at the difference between order and chaos as pertains to t-shirt quilts.
First of all, I grew up looking at quilts that two of my great-grandmothers and my grandmother made or were working on. In high school, my favorite classes were geometry, accounting, physics and silver-smithing (I went to a great high-school - we also had archery and canoeing as phys-ed options). I was a computer programmer in the corporate world. I like lists. I like to read Science Fiction. OK, yeah, I am a geek. But, all of these studies involve science and ORDER. So, how does that pertain to quilts you ask??
