This will be my very first post, so go easy on me please Smiley 

I've never made a quilt before, not even anything that could resemble a quilt, but my Mr. Kilt turned 26 today and I wanted to give him something special. Last year he lost over 40 kg (ca 88lbs) in nine months and as a result all of his clothes were way too big on him. He loved the prints on them, so whats a girl to do? 
A t-shirt quilt, of course!
I know it's been done before, but I'm so proud over myself for pulling this one off Cheesy

it looks great! I like the layout and edging. i never thought to do it that way but then again, I had issues making mine when they were all the same size so it's probably a good thing I didn't try it that way. ; )
