It is 59 x 68 size and my husband loves it. Now is sandwiched and ready for handquilt. This top is the sum of several fantastic lessons:

1.- Ive got scraps. Yes and It was fun cuting and chopping in the correct sizes, basicaly 5 charms whith the Shape cut ruler of June Taylor and not afraid of doing it bad because they are scraps (Now Im a pro!)
2.- What to do with used shirts? Well, cut them of course! A lot of fun, more fabric for my quilt!!! Thank you Seven Shirts + Seven Steps tutorial.
3.- With a lot of 5 recycled charms and the tutorial of easy HST I began my controlled scrap, bought a neutral tan for blend and a a blue backquilt (its a guy quilt!)
4.- And I pieded it with my new singer FW. Thank you vintage machine fans. I learned about this one in this board. And now Ive got three.
5.- And the best part is that I am cutting my second one in red & white with a tutorial of Jenny Doan MSQC: The Jacob's Ladder Remix Quilt. And learning to do easy four patch blocks. I loooove easy tutorials!

The prewash of fabrics and yours tips antibledders are very useful I hope I've do it correctly...
