T-Shirt Quilt

Oooh, I'm so excited! One of my many little sisses from sorority days is an accomplished quilter, and a few months ago, my parents sent her all my old sorority, band, theatre, and a couple miscellaneous t-shirts so she could turn them into a quilt... and I got it in the mail today! I really, really like it. It's so big, I think it would fit a king-size bed - granted, I don't have any beds that big, and it barely fits in my linen closet, but she fit in all the shirts I wanted, which is super cool. Also, Heather quilted it in this beautiful hearty-swirly pattern. Really, it's totally gorgeous. Mom had thought that the quilt could be backed in fleece, but Heather's machine can't handle that, so she backed it in bright turquoise and hemmed the fleece, so now I have a new quilt and a new fleece blanket. I don't know it it's anything I will ever put on a bed, but it's really cool to have as a memento, and if anyone ever comes to visit again, now we have some extra blankets!

my new t-shirt quilt - A- (a few points off for its massiveness, but only a few)

I see familiar ones but I don't see the Hot Sex shirt. Don't disappoint our little bro.

I see a few familiar ones. Remember when dressing nice meant wearing your embroidered TBS tshirt with jeans and a belt? sigh...

I've thought about doing that too, but I'm such a packrat, that I hate to cut the shirts up. Like I'm going to ever wear them again...

It's on there, Summer, way at the top of the second row, and the letters are in the third row. Remember, yours was red and blue and mine was yellow and green!
Much love from Hot Sex #2!

Brigadoon, Brigadoon,
Blooming under sable skies.
Brigadoon, Brigadoon,
There my heart forever lies.
Let the world grow cold around us,
Let the heavens cry above!
Brigadoon, Brigadoon,
In thy valley, there'll be love!

All, hail, the Google for helping cure my lyric issues!
