    Just wanted to share my latest quilt. It is a combination tee shirt quilt with flannel sashing made into a rag quilt. A woman in my office asked me to make this for her daughter. The tee shirts are all from her daughter's college sorority.

    Nice work! I just don't see the rag part but that is fine. It is a lovely well designed quilt!

    I love this. That is a marvelous way to do a Tshirt quilt. I love do Tshirt quilts and always love to find new ideas for them. Thank you.

    Thanks for this idea!!! Now I know what to do with the 30 some t-shirts my son sent.
    As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

    I should have taken a close up of the details. I have the seam allowances to the front of the quilt. What I did was add a flannel sashing to each tee shirt so that it could be "ragged"
