I really wish I had the ability to make these large quilts. A lot of clothes that have worn out past the point of donation would be a perfect for such a project, and just think I could then donate the quilt. Thank you for sharing your artwork with us and if you haven't already done so there is still time to make a quilt square for the Skull Appreciation Day quilt project. You can find detail about it here.

That is's not easy using old tees for quilting!

I'm working hard on a couple of squares to donate...hope to have them in the mail this weekend!:)

I've had so much fun doing these I'm thinking of making a wallhanging for myself!

Totally f'ing awesome! Killer work, Ben!

As for me, I have a bunch of old tattoo shop t-shirts that I'm sure my wife would rather see on a quilt than in my closet. lol!
