I'm finishing ANOTHER WIP (if you're counting, I finished four quilts in the last month).  I started this in NYC and most of these t-shirts were sent to me by my friends or online "friends" in the threadless forums.  You can probably pick out the non-threadless tshirts.  They were shirts that were either very pretty and too small for me that I also included here.  I like the background fabric and the binding a lot.  I LOVE how soft it is since the t-shirts have been worn a lot.  I did minor quilting to keep it poufy and not compete with the design of the t-shirts.

I'm looking to send my Step-Sister's Choice quilt to a new home.  If you're interested in swapping for fabric/scrapbooking supplies, send me a PM.

I love threadless shirts!  This is a great way to use them and have a fun and soft blanket.
