    I am also making patchwork and I know how long it takes to make such a blanket. It is a very good idea to give a second life to old T-shirt and the result is wonderful.

    LOL! I made one for my husband who is retired from the Air Force. He has many t shirts saved over the years and his quilt tells a story of his life. You’re right it takes an absurdly long time! Your quilt is nice.
