    t-shirt quilt

    Hey all,
    I finished this t-shirt quilt UFO! It's a 75th birthday present for my cousin who deposited her t-shirt collection on me several years ago LOL!

    It's lap size, approx. 72" x 54".

    Thanks for looking.

    Rob

    I think you got the numbers switched and it's 57, and I bet she would agree with me. She will be surprised and very happy with the quilt. It's a great memento of happy times.

    looks great--I like how you varied the size of blocks based on t-shirt design--that is not easy to do and get it all to fit!
