This is a t-shirt quilt I made for my boyfriends birthday, he knew what it was because he told me to make it! But lets just say he loved it. His brother even asked him what store he got it from and that it looked professional!(hes not very observant of his brothers tshirts I guess)Now if thats not the best comment you can get I dont know what is Tongue
Onward to the pictures!

Here is the full quilt its HUGE fits on a queen sized bed.

This is a close up of a square I appliqued on. Its his earth name from a out door program we did(its Evergreen)You can also see the buttons(I LOVE BUTTONS!)


Close up of the corner so happy with how it turned out

All wrapped up


Thanks for looking

Thank you so much for sharing!  I end up getting my DH snarky t-shirts on a regular basis, so this is a GREAT idea for me to save the sayings (after the rest of the shirt has died) and put them on a useful item.  Hooray!

That turned out really nice. Is it hard to keep the tees from stretching?

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

I just interfaced each one so I didnt need to worry about fooling around with stretchy fabric. It took a long time but in the end it was worth it.
