Then eventually made it to this...
And all the way down to this...
And ended up with this front...
And this yellow and green back...

And the requisite close-up to show the custom quilting, which is the time-consuming part of the process, but also the most fun. :)
What do you think of that back? I used more of the yellow because the green is very dark, but it feels that there's still too much green. I think it has something to do with that strip of tees in the yellow. Maybe the strip breaks up the yellow too much? What are the best proportions when including a strip of tees? Or maybe the question is how can I add the strip, still use both colors, and avoid this feeling that the proportion is off? I really want your input/suggestions. I have two more quilts that will have tee shirts on the back, so I need to figure this out.
