It is beautiful. Have heard about t-shirts quilts and yours turned out great.

Beautiful job! I've not done one yet, maybe someday. The only way we learn is to jump in there and give it a try!

I have worked at a quilt shop and have seen many many t-shirt quilts come in. Yours is beautiful! Be proud! Mhow did you determine the pricing? Dd u charge by the hour? Just curious for info when I get asked to make a t-shirt quilt.

I'm like everyone else - really love your quilt, one of the best t shirt quilts I have ever seen! The "uniqueness" of the patchwork and the framing is wonderful. And the fact that your client recognized the value of your work is great also!
Kudos to you both!
