This quilt is NOTHING compared to the beautiful quilts that are on here, but it's my first one, and I really like it, even though the edges aren't quite straight and it's not nearly perfect.

I made this for my boyfriend. I worked on it in short bursts, so it's taken me AGES to finally finish it.

Here's the full quilt -


The block in the center is made of t-shirts. =D


Here's a close-up of the Beatles shirt that's the focus of the t-shirt block -


Here's some of the pattern on the green printed fabric -


The stitching on the back of the quilt (the blue fabric is flannel - so cuddly!)


And, finally, the strawberries in the bottom-right corner -


Let me know what you guys think!

You did a great job! I'm in the starting stages of my first quilt and it freaks me out Smiley I love coming on here to see others firsts and yours definantly turned out good. And remember, it's homemade, it won't be perfect, it will be unique Smiley

It looks very cozy! It will be great to curl up with and I'm sure your boyfriend appreciates all of the time and love you put into it. I really love the little strawberries. That was a clever idea.

Aw, thank you! The strawberries were a last-minute thing. I found some fabric that had strawberries and watermelons printed all over it, so I stole them. =D I'm thinking of adding some more.
