    I agree!! That background fabric really makes this T-shirt quilt special. It is great and it adds such motion and visual interest to the quilt. I for one am glad you shared this picture. Hopefully no one will be offended by the shirts. I wasn't but I was born without the "delicate sensibility" gene. :lol: :lol:

    Great job! I have one started but am kind of stuck since many of the logos are of different sizes. I have them all cut and fused and have started putting borders around them but not sure how to arrange them because of the different sizes. There's no hurry though as I have 2-3 baby quilts to finish first.

    Nlpakk, welcome to the board. This T-shirt quilt may give you some ideas... It was made with all different size T's. I did not make this quilt, my friend did. I quilted it for her on my LA. Her setting made this one of the most unique T-shirt quilts I had seen. She just used a lot of filler for the background in various sizes.

    feline fanatic- Thanks for posting the pic. That gives me a better idea of what to do. I think I like the squares better without the border so maybe I'll take the borders off of the ones I have already done. Looks like they have had to make either vertical or horizontal rows and adding filler or background material to make them all the same size. With all of my borders, it makes it look too busy with so many colors. If I remember I will try and take a picture of what I have done so far and post it, hoping for more suggestions.
