Your quilt Rocks!!
I stopped buying Paul Frank after they fired Paul, but I couldn't part with some of the T-shirts!  Great Idea!!!
My Dad's friend's wife (yeah, that's right), made him a quilt from all his Hard Rock T-shirts after the Great Pen-in-the-Wash debacle and he loves it!

That looks great, can I ask how heavy it is, because my experience with t-shirt quilts has been that they are unbearably heavy...

This one looks good enough to make me want to try making one though...

This one is not heavy at all because I interfaced each shirt with lightweight interfacing and then did not include any batting.  I just put a super soft cotton on the back.  It has the weight of a couch throw.

 Grin Thanks for all the wonderful comments everyone!  I am actually right in the middle of another T-shirt quilt for my best friend!  I'll have to post some pics!  Grin

Thanks for letting me know.  I think I may need to try this out.

Looks awesome!  What did you use for the edging? and also I was wondering if you cut out the blocks as 9x9 exactly and then lost a little when you sewed or did you make them like 10x10 at first?  I cant wait to try something similar!

That is so cute! I love paul frank. Wish I had read about using the interfacing before I did my quilt, I used some tshirt material on part of it and it was a pain in the butt cause it was so stretchy.
