Middle Son's Tee-shirt/Sports Jersey wall hanging......done!

 Several years ago my middle son (I have three sons) gave me his sports jerseys from when he was very young and playing team sports;  A football jersey, 2 basketball tees, and 2 soccer tees.  He asked me to make a quilt for him.  I told him there were not enough for a regular quilt and asked if he had other tees he wanted to add.  He insisted those were the only ones he wanted to include so I sort of put them on the back burner thinking I would come up with something eventually.

Just recently I saw what I thought was the perfect idea and I am so pleased with the outcome.

the quilt is probably about throw size (50"x50") but I'm thinking his plan is to use it as a wall hanging.......

I had found what I used for the backing at a garage sale.....someone had used the fabric for a curtain and it seemed to be perfect.  Since I had backed each of the jerseys with iron-on stabilizer I opted to just sandwich the front and back with no batting...........

I have added this to my WOOFA list since it sat in my UFO pile for so many years........(I probably need a "Unstarted Object" pile
