T-shirts + quilting = need advice!

Random musings have led me to this thought:

I love t-shirts. Seriously. I cannot get enough of them. Not the cutesey ones that you can wear out to dinner. I mean the ones you work out in, mow the lawn in, clean your house in [enter my activity this morning]. So, I have acquired quite a few, and have loved them to the end of their existence. Almost. I also have t-shirts that are WAY too big for you to wear [insert every t-shirt given at BYU-I activities] and Tyler has a bunch too.

So, I want to make a t-shirt quilt. Except that I'm a pattern person. With no pattern.

My mother-in-law let me borrow her sewing machine and it comes with a quilting-pedal foot. Its pretty rad looking. I need to have a project that takes a few minutes longer than the others, and now that its snowy [etc], I would love to start this!

Anyone have advice?!
