This is so lovely I cant believe this is your first one, that is a lot of sewing for sure.  And a great idea to include your tshirts. Thanks for sharing.

I love it! So often I want to make a quilt nut feel that the patterns have to match or "go together" that I get a mental block.  The type of quilt is just the thing I should try!

great way to make a t-shirt quilt.  I love how it looks.
How heavy did it end up?

Thank you! I don't like thick quilts (I prefer lots of thin layers), so this one isn't all that thick. Its a pretty decent weight though. I used a flannel sheet instead of batting and its just right for me.

That's a great idea, especially for people who live in hot climates.

I like the look of your quilt too.

What I love is that looking at it from a distance you get a very distinct 3d visual. It is very impressive.
