Here's a pic of a t-shirt quilt that I finished making for a customer today. She brought me a bag of the t-shirts that she had collected from 30 years of going to the Toad Suck Daze* festival in Conway each year and I constructed them into the quilt you see here. I like how it turned out! :)

* (Toad Suck Daze is an annual festival held in Conway, AR each Spring. It gets it's name from the nearby Toad Suck Ferry on the Arkansas River. Back when steamboats plied the Arkansas River waters, when the river became impassable due to low water levels, captains and their crews would tie up here and wait for levels to rise. While waiting, they would drink at a local tavern where it was said that they would "suck on the bottle until they swelled up like toads".)
