Queen size quilt.  Made from t-shirts and fishing fabric.  Made by my quilting buddy, Carol and I last year.

We stabilized the t-shirts with light weight iron-on interfacing.  I bought a panel of fish, cut four of the fish into quarters, and sewed wood print fabric in between the quarters, then sewed the pieces back into a whole.  It looks like you are looking through a window pane at the fish.  On the back, we used pieces of the left over t-shirts to add to the framing of the fisherman panel pieces.  Most of the quilting was in-the-ditch, some was free motion around the fish, all by machine.
