    I finally finished this T-shirt quilt for my DGS, Luke. He was 20 years old on June 30. I have had most of these T-shirts for at least 10 years and finally he started bugging me that he wanted his quilt to take to college with him. I was pleased with the way it turned out, except one shirt had plastic lettering on it and the colors ran when I pressed it. This is the 2nd T-shirt quilt I've made and it never happened before. I advise to test the T-shirts before you sew them into a quilt.

    Love the little log cabin blocks. Your color choices are spot on.

    I have made several and I always use a pressing cloth. What a beautiful job on this one.
