Description

Old T-shirts from the 80's.  Caltech musicals, L.A. Olympics, some from Hawaii.
The M&M tee shirts came from Phil, who got about 40 free ones by collecting M&M packages on the floor at the theatre where he worked.
Made with cross-weave knit interfacing. "Brigadoon" was the Caltech musical in 1983.  There is one from the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles.

I always thought about doing t-shirt quilts, but with 6 kids, there were so many shirts, I was overwhelmed. This one is great. I love the sashing with the points...like a perfect frame around each piece. Wonderful!

What a creative way to border them. Love what you did.

Best ever t-shirt shirt. The multi-colored frames/sashing really work well.
