The tricky part of this project was that the shirts were worn from the teeny toddler years through the mini-man-size years so the images weren't all the same size. I had to spend some time measuring the usable sections and laying them out like a puzzle on graph paper to figure out how to make them fit best, with roughly even border strips. The planning effort was worth it, I think -- I really like the non-grid layout of this quilt, and how the busy comic border fabrics bring the whole thing together. I quilted straight lines around every block through the borders, and some custom free-motion work in each block.
