I've always wanted to try the T-Shirt quilt that is in Gen. T, but I like your idea a lot too! Now...to gather up some t-shirts.

I am totally, amazingly impressed by your tshirt quilt.  I had no idea that this could be so easy, though every sewing project is challenging for me.

I need to study a bit more on the tyeing between the squares part.

You were so lucky to locate the exact fleece needed for the backing.

It's great to have the tutorial for a quilt, like this, without the need for actual traditional quilting.

thanks.  catdaddytn

The tying between the squares is very easy, here is how I did it:

I threaded a sharp yarn needle (like a tapestry needle, I guess) with embroidery floss and at the point where 4 squares meet, I put the needle through and then back again. Then, I tied a tight square knot, cut the thread and moved on to the next place where four squares met.
