I like this too, and started it a few days ago. Now'm stalled because I can't find the longest circular needle to conplete the outside ! Guess I'll have to go order it online.

Very pretty. Wonder how it would be as a nest. My small dog loves to make nests from the bath mat!

That is great. What would it cost to make it with their yarns?

Last year I volunteered to teach a quilting class at our senior center. We were asked to make a quilt of T-shirts that had been sold over 10 years to raise money to increase awareness of wearing seat belts after one of our high school volley ball stars was killed in a car accident, without her seat belt. The quilt was displayed at the ten year annual memorial volleyball tournament
We used the fronts and back of the colorful shirts in the quilt, so I made yarn of the sleeves, and tails, and they worked up into great cotton bathmats, crocheted. Since then I've made more yarn from worn out cotton knit nightgowns, etc. You can make them in any size. They are very absorbent, and easy to launder. Just an idea.

Here is a pic of the Buckle Up For Lane Quilt.

Thank you. It was really a labor of love. The young lady's grandmother financed all materials, and having this as a teaching project was inspirational to all of the ladies in the quilt group. They learned a lot, and worked together so well. Mrs. Mac
