T-shirt Quilt

I recently finished this quilt for Diane.  She cleaned out her husbands closet and got together some t-shirts, some old and some new.  He works in a public setting, so gets given many t-shirts of all kinds, and would never be able to wear them all!!

I stitched in the ditch around each each block, and abit in the middle, in keeping with each decal.  Then in the borders, I picked a couple of fishing designs from the book "Simply Continuous, Boys to Men" by Anne Bright.  Perfect for this manly quilt!

Diane picked a perfect backing, not only are the colours perfect, and the print suitable, but the stitches in many different colours of thread are hardly noticeable.
