Default I felt honored

At the recent EAA AirVenture I took my t-shirt quilt I made from t-shirts given to us over the years from the Bendix/King Company. I wanted to show them what I had done with the shirts. As I was showing it to the girls at the counter, all the guys came over to see it. The guys were much more excited about it than the girls. They asked me if they could display the quilt for the week for others to see. I did not expect that they would want to display it. I have shown this picture here before, but the way they hung my quilt, it is a much better picture.

Awesome! It was interesting that the guys were more interested than the women. Hmmm - - -

I really like the way you did the sash strips between the blocks with that x in there. That looks great and I'm not surprised why they wanted to hang this. It looks real great.

Love the way the background colors sets off the blue of the tshirts! What an honor to be asked to display it!
