    That is so impressive! I love the yellow stripes you used to set everything off. It really makes the quilt unique.

    Wow!! What an awesome quilt!! I was wondering about the symbols too. I bet the owner was as proud as he could be. Love the colors. they are the same as our local school.
    Be the best that you can be at everything you do.

    there's a very long story behind why it took so long.
    i didn't work on it every day. other things interrupted often and for months at a time.

    offsetting the shirts wasn't difficult.
    i just treated them like big centers of a wacky log cabin or crazy quilt square.
    i tilted them and then added to each of the four sides until they were big enough to trim back to the final size.

    i used one of the many quilt as you go methods.
    it was huge and heavy, but with some help from a friend i managed to wrassle it through to add straight-line quilting to the sashing.

    thanks for all the compliments.
