What are you most proud of? Finding storage for all those tee shirts all these years. I wish I had cut them into squares as I went along they would have been easier to store!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It is not as easy as it might seem. The tees are stretchy, the iron-on interfacing was difficult to sew. I had difficulty keeping everything square and couldn't use the framing I wanted for each tee. I used really puffy poly batting which I had never used before - I like it, though the quilt is quite heavy! I may use again when I have something that I will quilt more heavily. It might have more interesting definition?! I used purchased binding - I find it firmer - to corral all those puffy layers.
