    This is my DSIL & DD with the t-shirt lap quilt I made for his birthday. It's my own design and I think it turned out great. He provided me with colorful t-shirts, so that's what got the design started. I think the black & white makes all the colorful blocks jump out at you. He seemed to really like it anyway.

    Great job! All those pieced black and white squares you used for background and sashing really give this T-shirt quilt a load of pizazz!

    This is really nice! I've seen a few T-shirt quilts that are ok but your use of the black and white patchwork really sets this one off. Lovely!

    Beautiful! I have done two tee shirt quilts, and I love the different sized blocks. But what a great idea with the small squares! Great job!

    Great job! I have heard so many people at work talk about t-shirt quilts but never saw a completed one. Love how the colors pop!
