    Christmas presents for my nephews, they're 10 and 12 and apparently they LOVE this kinda stuff.
    they're just alike save for the outer border.

    The centers are actually t-shirt iron-ons I found on eBay, paid like 5$ total for them.
    Put them on cotton fabric and boy were they a bear to get transferred onto the fabric and still had parts of them that didn't make the transfer at all but it's difficult to tell.
    Sent my sis a pic of the red one before it was finished and she show'd my brother (the boys' dad) and he said wayyyyy cool,
    so that's prolly close to what the boys will say too. :)

    PS thanx for the comments :) :)

    it's going to take a day or two for my poor back to recover lol

    You did an awesome job on these! I made a log cabin quilt for my daughter out of skulls and roses. Must be the day and age. They'll love them!

    That's a good idea! (I was actually wondering if they were t-shirts that you had fussy cut.)

    I've got an 11 year old nephew who would love this quilt.
    Great job. There will be two lucky boys at Christmas time.

    Renee nope not quilted yet trying to decide how to go about that atm.

    mtp doubt they have nightmares apparently this was the type of thing they brought home as souvenirs from their trip to the Black Hills.

    I kinda like 'm myself and when I saw this particular iron-on, I said, "That's the one!"
