T-shirt quilt is almost ready to hang

Some of the lettering on the T-Shirt quilt I have now hand quilted around the lettering on the T-shirt quilt and finished 3 sides of the binding.

Next we need to pick out the rod that we will hang it on so I know what size to make the sleeve, then I can finish the top. Last Saturday we took it to DH's office to see how it would actually look there. He will have to move a filing cabinet and a bookshelf but it looks like it will just fit in between a thermostat and another filing cabinet. He will have to get the Buildings and Grounds people to put up the brackets for the rod since we don't have a drill for the concrete walls. I told him I needed it today to show to my Senior Center group, next Monday morning to show to my Monday morning quilting group, next Saturday to show to my quilt guild, and then want to take it to SC with us when we visit my sisters and mom for Thanksgiving. In between those times he can have it in his office.

Here are a couple of pictures of one of the shirts - hopefully you can see the great quilting job that my local long-arm quilter did on it.

I really like the quilt. Was it had to work with the t-shirt fabric?

Great idea for tshirts. I like the photo under the tshirt fabric.
