*edit*
i'm working on making a second quilt just like this one (except it's turquoise and black) for my friend/roomie at school.  i already tye dyed the squares but my mom and i havent started sewing yet.  if anyone is interested in a tutuorial let me know so i can document as i go along.
*end edit*

Okay so this isn't one of those awesome fancy quilts that takes all the patience in the world, but hey it's a start!

I made this quilt for my independent art studio class during my senior year of high school. (i just finished my first year of college and it seems like h.s. was so long ago! Shocked





I bought tshirt material (i tried cutting up old white tshirts but because the fibers were all so different they didn't dye consistently they way i would have liked them too)  and cut the into squres and tyedyed 2 squares together at at time.  Then i sewed the squares into rows with thin white strips inbetween each square before sewing them all together with long thing white strips inbetween each row.  I backed it with black fleece and used more long strips of tshirt material for the edging.  Finally I used pieces of thick black string and brought them up trough the fleece and onto the corners of each block before knotting them.

it's held up nice through out the year at college and its def my favorite blanket!  Smiley

You did an awesome job! When I saw tyedye in the title I thought you had just used regular fabric with that design but yours is much better.
