It isn't the greatest, but it was difficult for me.....I took most of his favorite shirts from his Kindergarten year and made him a quilt.  Smiley  The front is all his shirts, including some hoodies that have the big pocket.....he is excited about that.  Cheesy 

Here is the front:


Here is a close up (the batman is actually the back of his favorite underwear...lol.....)


Here is the back..it is just random fabric I had:


and my FAV fabric ever...the coolest batman fabric I've seen:

That's awesome! I never thought of using shirts instead of just FQs or whatever from Joannes. Thanks for making me realize I am an idiot who doesn't think  Tongue

Two questions:

1.)  Did you use stabilizer on the tshirts, or just sew them as they were?
2.)  Did you quilt or tie?

It looks great!  I'm sure your son loves it!

Making an effort to use proper English and not 'net slang makes me much more willing to respond to your post.

lol....thanks for all the compliments.  I am so happy with it...and he loves it.  It has squares from all this superhero shirts....which I am finding kids his age don't wear anymore.....they grow up too fast......and it has squares from the tie-dye shirt they made for field trips.....I hope he takes good care of it and will have it when he gets older.  Smiley  It is a good memory quilt.....I remember him wearing all these shirts....and jumping around the house in his cute underoos....lol...thats why I had to take the back off his fav ones...lol.....he is going to kill me for that when he gets older!

I just cut out the parts I liked from the shirts and used the squares...I am in no way a professional and don't even know what stabilizer is...lol....and I quilted it.  you can tell on the back I quilted all the plain fabric squares......I'm not a professional, as I said...but I made it work.  Cheesy
