That is so impressive! I love the yellow stripes you used to set everything off. It really makes the quilt unique.

That is so beautiful! I've never seen a more effective T-Shirt quilt. Are those LSU colors? Thanks for sharing,

there's a very long story behind why it took so long.
i didn't work on it every day. other things interrupted often and for months at a time.

offsetting the shirts wasn't difficult.
i just treated them like big centers of a wacky log cabin or crazy quilt square.
i tilted them and then added to each of the four sides until they were big enough to trim back to the final size.

i used one of the many quilt as you go methods.
it was huge and heavy, but with some help from a friend i managed to wrassle it through to add straight-line quilting to the sashing.

thanks for all the compliments.
