Default Our Wrestling coach's quilt is finished!

I finally said yes to someone that ask me to make a T-Shirt quilt. I made this quilt for our Parkersburg South Wrestling coach Paul Jackson. He retired this year after coaching for over 30 years.

The quilt has 33 shirts on it. There are 3 rows of 12 & 2 rows of 16 inch blocks. I free hand quilted in on my short arm machine. I also cut out 2 different patterns with my cricket, one was the word COACH with bubbled letters & the other was the shadow of 2 boys wrestling. I had 2 spots on the quilt that was empty with no tshirt design so thats where I quilted them in.
