Lots of people are doing these, but I thought sharing mine might help.  I went the easy route on my bedspread.  I cut 10x10 in. squares at 7 across and 7 down.  Once I had made the large square, I took my old bedspread (the one with burn marks and unidentifiable stains) and measured the difference.  Then, I needed to make panels to make the 70x70 square fit the slightly larger rectangle of my bedspread.  Once I had done that, I sewed those all together and binded the edges in bias tape.  No need to quilt the whole thing across the top to stick the layers together, they fit fine and don't move around or bunch up like I thought they might.  My man and I are so happy with it, we never want to get out of bed!  Plus, for a more conservative view, I can turn the bedspread over to show the plain red side with black bias tape edges.  That side of the bedspread was not as marred and pocked as the side I covered with t-shirts.  If you have a TON of t-shirts you can't wear any more, enjoy them every day this way!

I never get tired of seeing t-shirt quilts.  They always inspire me.  Smart use of the bedspread too!

This is pretty super neat, especially the Monty Python t-shirt on the top right!
