This is amazing!  I love all the tiny little details and the black borders really make the colours pop!  I would never have guessed it was made from t-shirts!

What a wonderful job. I figured that T-Shirt material could be used to make a decent quilt with actual quilt pattern blocks. I have tons of T-shirt scraps. Now I have something I can do with them that isn't pillow stuffing. Cheesy

Wow this is an incredible quilt.
Congratulations on finishing it.
I love the colours and the border is really striking.
I cannot imagine how long it took you to sew all those tiny t-shirt shapes.

Amazing! I absolutely love your blog, too. Your so-called "Ugly" quilt? FABULOUS!!

edit: and as I was going through your blog I kept thinking "this work looks familiar, I know I've seen some on another site" and I was right. Once I saw your quilted horn suit on there I knew exactly who you are. Nice to see that you're still doing cool stuff!

Your labor of love totally paid off.  Recycling at it's best!  Grin  I love the pop of color from your ties, they even look great on the back.  This rocks!
