4 or maybe it was even 5 nearly solid days of work later...

Front, nearly 80X80"


Back


Paul Frank shirts


Shirts hand painted or stencilled by me


Shirts from swaps here on Craftster


Bugs


My sister's old shirts


And my favourite of the lot


Some pieces were too small so I made patches with 4 squares so I could use all the fun little bits

I was worth the work to make such a memory quilt!  It is way bigger than I thought---well done!  I especially love all of the pops of color!

It's way bigger than I thought it was going to be too, I don't know how that happened! I cut the squares 10x10" and there are 8 across and down and the seam allowance is about 3/8" but still the finished thing is nearly 80x80", now how did that happen?!
