    My First T-Shirt Quilt

    I made this for my oldest granddaughter..she is 26...she was in cheerleading, softball, drama and academic teams all thru school..her mother had saved all her shirts...didn't have room to put them all on the quilt..enjoyed making this one...but got another one to do for younger granddaughter..I think I learned a few things on this first one..that will help on the second one..thanks for looking...Name:  Maeghan's t-shirt quilt top 001.JPG

    I'm not a fan of t-shirt quilts, but I must say this is the best one I've seen. This could change my mind. Well done! I like it!

    Love the 3D look of this quilt. I saw one where they had t-shirts on the front and back they had so many to use. Just a thought for the next one.
