T-shirts and flannel quilt

I gathered t-shirts last night from closets and drawers. I put them in piles and here is what I have: from left to right front row - Springsteen, Pink Floyd, R.E.M., Jimmy Buffett, back row - a pile of scraps, one Cleveland Indiana shirt, a pile of odds and ends including one shirt of each AC/DC, Kiss, Tina Turner, Janet Jackson, Hendrix, and left over pieces and parts from the Akron Art Prize quilt. This is a good starting point and I was glad to get these organized so I could see what I had.

See the writing on the top R.E.M. shirt? Mike Mills autographed it for me.

I finished quilting the flannel quilt last evening and got started getting the binding ready. I don't think I have enough red to go around the quilt which is fine. I have lots of leftover pieces of flannel so I will just add something else tonight when I get the binding sewn on.

I'll get you Marley shirts in the mail tomorrow. I keep forgetting to take them out of the bag and take them upstairs!

No problem - just let me know what I owe you for them. Thanks so much - patty the quilt lady.

I lied. After the doctor visit I ended up getting X-rays instead if visiting the purple Cow. Tomorrow I deserve a doctor free day at The Cow!

No problem! The important part is that you didn't damaged your new knee or anything else!

Wow, the quilting went quick! Very cool that you have a signed t-shirt to use. It looks like you have a great collection to start. My husband has a large collection of t-shirts that I would love to donate. . . it might cause some major issues though! :)
