I love your new book T-Shirt Quilts Made Easy. I had made a couple of T-shirt quilts and several traditional quilts before purchasing this book, but I could never quite figure out how to make those beautifully coordinated quilts with the different sized blocks. When I discovered how to use a grid to create T-Shirt quilts, it opened up a whole new way for me to recycle old clothes and T-Shirts into beautiful quilts as well as use pictures and lay out orphan blocks as well. Thank you so much for this great instructional book.

I have your T-shirt quilt book. I would like the layout for the quilt isn’t this darling. Is this a possibility that I may get?
