    Looks great...you did a good job with the different sized blocks.

    How is it quilted? I saw one recently that had no quilting on the t-shirt pieces, just in the sashing and borders but it looked sort of unfinished to me. Did you quilt on the t-shirt pieces? Is that a pain to do?

    very nice and I like that the quilt isn't done in perfectly aligned blocks and rows.

    I tied it. I just don't trust myself to FMQ something that big yet. Plus I didn't want anything to block the shirts. I used matching embroidery floss & tied every 6"~ Warm & White batting said to go up to 10" so it should be safe. Also I put fray check on the floss as well as on the holes the needle made. A few of these shirts were old ('87!) so I wanted to be extra careful. I am a hand quilter so this wasn't my style but the customer was happy.She didn't appreciate/know the difference of tying/machine quilting/hand quilting. LOL she just wanted 'something' done with the shirts!

    Someone asked me what is used in a T-shirt quilt to keep theblocks from stretching while working with them. As I have never made one myself, I couldn't answer. Would you tell me, please? Marge L.

    I would never of thought to use gray for the sashing and borders - It looks fabulous!

    Sure! You need to use iron on light weight pellon. This is why you can't hand quilt them.

    Great quilt. I've never made a T-shirt quilt but I hear they are a challenge with the odd sizes and the stretch fabric.
