    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    That is a great quilt. Bet you have heard some wonderful music or else whoever the shirts belong to did. Lots of years represented there. It is a wonderful quilt, Linda.

    That looks great! How big are your individual t-shirt blocks? It looks like they all vary in size.

    Thank you all for the very kind words. I will try to answer all of your questions. The tshirts belong to a local radio host on our public radio station. His program is called The Bluegrass Ramble. This year he celebrated his 39th year as host of this program. In the late 1980s, he instituted an annual free all day bluegrass show to bring bluegrass out to the public more and to get his listeners together. These are shirts he has collected over the years as host of his Bluegrass Ramble Picnic. I have made the quilt to honor and congratulate him on being in his 40th year as host of the radio show and for providing this wonderful day of awesome music and musicians free to all comers. The bands all donate their time also.
    So the tshirts are of all ages, all have been used, some more than others. He wears them to music events to spread the word.
    The tshirt portions are different sizes, based on the design. I prefer playing with sashing and design over cutting the shirts all the same regardless of what size the design on it is. So the tshirt sections ranged from 12x12" up to 11x14.5". I used sashing on each block to bring all the blocks up to 16.5". Then I used the main sashing for the whole quilt to provide unity. Here is a link to my first tshirt quilt here on the board:

    Nice job - I have been wanting to make a t-shirt quilt for my grandson using his shirts from his football, b-ball and baseball teams that he has played on. I am from the Bluegrass State but never heard of Bluegrass Ramble. What is it?

    The Bluegrass Ramble is a program on our local PBS station that is hosted by Mr. Bill Knowlton. He just celebrated his 39th year as host of that show. Each year he also hosts a free bluegrass music event that lasts all day and has bands playing all day. This is the Bluegrass Ramble Picnic. This quilt I made for Bill from his shirts he has collected from the Picnic over the years.
