Get Ready Not to Tell

Check it out! My brother sent me a whole box of his old t-shirts!  This actually is exciting.  It's a whole new free to me project.  (Technically I think most of these shirts were free themselves, my brother has a reputation for his free shirts...)
A while ago my brother was asking how one would go about making a t-shirt quilt.  His actual question was "what is the easiest way" to make one.  My mental response, "send them to me!!!" but far be it from me to rob someone of the opportunity to quilt, so I told him various ways his wife could make them into a quilt.  Next my brother started asking how one would go about getting me to make them a t-shirt quilt.  Twist my arm!
I expect my brother is thinking more along the lines of The Blanket of Heat, but really, I made that when I was fourteen and it's tied.  I've come quite a bit farther in my quilting in the last fifteen years.  
 The Blanket of Heat has served us all well, but Jeremy's is gonna be awesome.  Be sure you don't tell.

In other sewing news, Susie has me totally inspired to bust out some yo-yos.  I have a few ideas in mind for these babies... and a whole bunch of their friends.
