Phew, this one took forever!

The T-Shirt Quilt is finally done!  
I didn't love making this, my first, t-shirt quilt.  In fact, I made it somewhat begrudgingly in an effort to rid these mostly-holey tees from my husband's closet.

Some of these shirts were so thin you could see through and others so thick with heavy painted-on designs. 

It is soft and snuggly though.

For the backing, I used manly buck heads.  One of the t-shirts had a line of aliens on the front and the back had the same aliens but pictured from the back.  So I transferred that idea onto the quilt.  One line of aliens on the quilt front, the other on the quilt back.

Have a great day!
