T-Shirt Quilt Leftovers!

I make t-shirt quilts for clients and always have so much fabric to throw away once the blocks have been cut from the shirts! I made a quilt from a friends daughters t-shirts from her college days and wanted to do something with all of that left over fabric!

I decided to make a background from 6 inch squares cut from the excess fabric and applique a large Sunbonnet Sue on top! The schools flower was the daisy so I included the flower in the design.

This isn't the best photo in the world!
