I finished my t-shirt quilt this past weekend and am very happy with the results. It is almost square and super cozy! It's going to be a perfect couch potato blanket. 
it's a good thing Derek is tall enough to hold this up!

The back is black, grey and blue fleece squares in a totally random pattern. In retrospect this is the one thing I wish I would have thought through more, but instead of making a plan, I just paired the heavier weight fleece (grey & black) with the thinner t-shirts. So, it is totally random on the back and not as balanced with the colours as I would have liked. Oh well, at least I finished something...only a decade of procrastination. Actually, if you look closely, the oldest t-shirt is from 1971. It was my Mom's and I used to wear it as a teenager. Talk about a blast from the past!


  1. It looks really, really cozy! Can I come over to watch a movie with you? :) I also LOVE that you have a shirt from 1971. That sucker is gold.

  2. It looks SOOOOOO good! Congratulations on the big finish! I bet it has a great weight for a couch potato blanket too. Nice work!

  3. Awesome! Girl's movie night at Lindsey's?? I like the new blue square placement!!!

  4. I would happily host a movie night except, while I now have a great cozy blanket...I do not have a couch or a TV. Hmmmm, maybe this is like Mara's shopping system...perhaps I should go find a couch and TV to match my blanket!

  5. hahhaa, that would be awesome. I bought a new pair of gloves the other day. I could really use a new snowboard to go with that.

    On another note, we have a t.v. we can give you...it so happens that when you mention that you have a shitty tv with a large group of people, MANY offers come through. Instantly. It turns out that lots of people have a phobia of throwing out tvs.

  6. See? It's a great system. Before you know it, you'll be getting a shiny new car to go with that fabulous pine air freshener you picked up at the clearance rack ;-)
