T-Shirt Quilt WIP for E

i've been wanting to make E a t-shirt quilt since i learned how to sew
i've been saving his shirts and we had a ton
i let him pick out his favorites

normally, i think these are sports themed
but he hasn't really played a lot of sports
so, his are just his favorites

the blocks are 12" square
stabilized and ready to assemble
(i forgot to say, I used wax paper as a temporary stabilizer, it was a lot
cheaper than heat-n-bond)

 old school shirt
 soccer shirt
 church shirt
 church again, bible school
 just a favorite
 his very favorite and mine too, and Pat's as well
 summer camp
 a favorite
 a favorite
 church, bible school
 a favorite, cause his maw maw bought it
 a favorite cause the yellow glows in the dark
 back of the summer camp shirt
i'll assemble these into a 12" block and it will make the 15 block.

next is borders for each block

i'm not worried about the exam prep class, just the state exam
