For Christmas a couple years back, my older sister bought me this amazing book called Generation-T - 108 Ways To Transform A T-Shirt. And there are soooo many different things to do and my favorite, and probably the most difficult, was the T-Shirt Quilt. It was really cool, because you need about 25 t-shirts, and you make a 7 X 7 Layout, and then you use a king size sheet for the backing, and then add batting if you really feel the need, but, if you don't it's pretty floppy.

So, I cut up a bunch of old graphic tees that I had lying around, because for some reason, I don't like getting rid of hilarious graphic tees that I bought back in high school, so, it really worked! And, I've done every part except sewing it ALL to the sheet and then adding batting.

I think what I'll end up doing is adding the batting and adding yet another king size sheet in a cool color so that it will contrast in a cool way, so, the picture above is pretty much just an idea, and when I finish, I'll post it, because mine will be kick ass Smiley

Wow, it is really amazing. I am really impressed by the straight lines - sewing stretch material is a nightmare! It looks like it would be really soft and warm too. Great job!
