Mo's Son's Shirt Quilt

Mo's children have all moved out and she is slowly sorting through all of the treasures they have left behind! 
One of her sons seem to have left a vast selection of shirts!
Mo had seen stripped quilts in magazines and books and decided his shirts would make an ideal
man size, Quillo.
We all helped unpicking the shirts and decided on a size rectangle which would sew together well.
One side is quite dark and Mo has lightened it up with some photo transfer and stitch.
The other is the lighter shirts. 
Mo has also embroidered his name, a ladder ( he is climbing Mount Everest soon) and added many of the labels that mean something onto it too!
