So, I have been brainstorming about a project I could do in stages, that wouldn't take up a lot of time in between stages, and that didn't require paint/chemicals/outside space/etc. It was about the same time that I started cleaning out my closet and drawers and realized I had a TON of t-shirts, that while I didn't necessarily wear them (ever!) I couldn't bear the thought of getting rid of them. There are special memories in those t-shirts, folks! So slam! Bam! Wheels started turning, and a t-shirt quilt came to mind. Here goes nothing!

Step 2: Trim the extras. Once I had my pile of shirts, I had to cut off all of the sleeves and extra fabric so that the decorated portion of the shirt can lay flat.
And... that's where I am now! I have about half of my shirts trimmed down, ironed, and made into squares. I still have a lot more to go, but it is definitely a work in progress.
