Great job. I made myself a quilt like that before, and my t-shirt collection is getting so big I may need to make another one. Love it.

I have been wanting to make one of these and use all my old concert tshirts. You have motivated me to get it done...now I just need to get one of my sewing machines working.

Haha, this is wonderful!  My boyfriend has a bunch of t-shirts, and so he attempted to make a t-shirt quilt a long time ago.  Needless to say, he only got halfway through before he accidently sewed through his thumb.  Hehe...he was fine, but scared to sew anymore so I had to finish it.  It didn't come out half as nice as yours so after seeing this post, I've been inspired to possibly redo it.   Grin

This made my day.

You can tell by the state of my room that they let me out to soon,
and that the pills that i ate came a couple days too late...

I've always wanted to do one of these! I actually have a bag that old t-shirts I can't bear to throw away, but that might look great on The Quilt, go into. Some would make cute pillows, too. I have only had my little sewing machine for a year or so. I can't do much on it, but I think I may be ready to tackle sewing some squares together to make something pretty nifty. Thanks for the inspiration!!!

I did that once, and I probably will make another someday. I had all these t-shirts from events and shows and vacations, and I held on to them because of "the memories," even though I NEVER wore them. So I did what you did, except since the designs were all different sizes, I cut out whatever I wanted, and laid it out on the floor, somehow hidden from my mother (I was supposed to be cleaning), filled in the empty spots with extra fabric, and backed it with pink fleece. I never used pins, so i am wondering how i did it.

Sigh, those were the days. I'm telling a story like someone will read it, but I'm really just like old people.

corri loves you!

Very, very cool - I've had this idea in the back of my mind but honestly seeing your quilt (which I just showed to my husband) has totally inspired me. He has plastic bins from his rock tours, other bands, record company, concerts, events, comic book stuff, etc from the 80's until now. He just cannot part with them and yet they are all stained or way, WAY too small now. He lately has said he HAS to save them for our 1 year old daughter so she won't wasted money buying vintage alt rock and new wave tees on E-bay when she is a teen. ; )

Thanks again for the inspiration. I'll post my photo when I get it completed.

Oh my jesus.

That is too cute... and cozy. I could go for some sleep with one of them right now. And you really can't tell that the squares don't match up unless you point it out AND spend too much time looking. I love the Elroy patch... I'm definitely collecting any old T-shirts now.
