    Okay, I am quite on here most of the time, but felt like I wanted ya'lls opinion. This is the reason I took quilting lessons a few months ago. My daughter gave me her Drill Team t-shirts about 5 years ago and asked me to make them into a quilt. Well, I had never made a quilt before. So I kept putting off.

    Well here is the top finally finished. It is laying on my King Size Bed. Still have back to do and then off to LAQ after I find one.

    It's spectacular!!! I have never seen such a beautiful quilt made out of t-shirts! You did a wonderful job. However it must have been an extremely difficult quilt to make for a quilting newbie. You took on a very hard pattern and no wonder you never plan to make another. But what a marvelous job you did!

    Turned out good. I think they would be hard to work with.

    For your first you did a pro job! I know you say it's your last T-shirt quilt, but I hope it's not your last quilt, you are a natural!

    Keep up the great work!

    That is the nicest T-shirt quilt I have seen - love the way you framed all the shirts designs with piecing. It is just terrific - you did a great job and no one would ever know that you had never made a quilt before. You must be a perfectionist. Just fabulous!

    Thanks everyone for your nice comments. I am really proud of this. After a couple of days with graph paper and colored pencils, I just took a deep breath and started one block at a time. I am really having fun learning my new hobby.
    Thanks again for all of the kind words.
