The only special thing I did was put some interfacing on the back of the middle square so I could embroider her name on it. Other than that, I pretty much followed directions from a few different sites and the Generation T recon book. I think the hardest part for me was getting the squares the same size and lining them up properly!
I hadn't seen the t-shirt quilt thread; of course I should have checked here first! If I end up doing another one, I'll be sure to look!
