All of the logos/designs/what-have-you on the t-shirts are different sizes so trying to pick one standard size to cut each t-shirt wasn't an option. This was a piece it as you go project and the layout changed many many times as I was working through it.
I have to admit that I'm not really a big fan of t-shirt quilts. Visually they just aren't that appealing to me.
I suppose that's not why you make them though. It's all about the memories the t-shirts evoke. This one is coming together pretty well and I'm really digging it.
As I was working on finishing up putting on the blocks together I took a risk and laid the quilt out on our bed so that I could more easily measure and figure out how to put the last few blocks on. I figured I was safe since my husband was in the basement watching TV and would likely remain there for the rest of the evening. Went back into my sewing room, sewed some more and came back out to the bedroom to find my husband staring down at the quilt. DOH!! All my secretive sewing was for naught. I told him it was supposed to be a surprise for father's day and he wondered why it was laying out in plain sight. Blah blah blah. The most important thing that came from that discussion was that he loved it. He even said "I love it". Which from a man is pretty huge I think. :)
He wanted to add one more t-shirt to it so it won't get done by father's day since my sewing time during the work week is minimal, which is fine since now I don't have to break my back to finish it by next weekend.
