    t-shirt quilts finished.

    I have been working on t-shirt quilts for my niece and for a friends son. Laura's are from musicals she was in my mom helped get it started. Ryan picked out all the fabrics and layout for his but will not be allowed to see it till Christmas. I am amazed at how well all the plaids went together in the end.

    They are great! You found a terrific way to make different-sized squares work together. I live in Minnesota now, but grew up in Wisconsin. We lived in Appleton for 10 years or so and loved it. I recognize several logos on Ryan's quilt!

    I really like your quilts!
    Do you have to put fusible on the back of the Tshirt picture before you cut? I have a box full of tshirts of my sons but am afraid to start. He wants it soft and snuggly with a flannel back. Will it be too stiff?

    I loved the grey as the background for the first one and then I saw the plaids as the background. Wow both are great.

    I like what you have done.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    You did a great job designing the layouts for the different shirts. Your background choices really look good.

    I am sure they will be well loved by the recipients.
