    King-Size T-Shirt Quilt

    a wee bit more than 10 feet across; a wee bit less than 10 feet long.
    made for a very kind and patient friend.
    he waited nearly three years for me to finish this.
    never a complaint. only heaps of compliments when i delivered it.

    You did an award winning job on that quilt. Both you and the recipient should be very proud of that. I hope he gets it insured!

    It's gorgeous! 3 years? That's daunting when I'm considering starting one for my step son today and wondering if I could possibly finish by Christmas! lol (I'm thinking probably not).... Anyway, I love, love, love they way you offset some of the t-shirts. I'd love to try that in mine, but that's probably a bit ambitious for me. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Love it. I really like the narrow gold sashing and it looks like it fits the bed perfectly!

    It's beautiful! You should see it in person! She did a wonderful job on it. I could have snatched it as she had it laid out in my living room. lol

    That looks awesome! It doesn't even look like a t-shirt quilt.

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