My first T-shirt quilt

This is the t-shirt quilt I made for my brother-in-law( pictured). He's a retired Casper,Wy firefighter. All the t-sirts were either dk blue or black & most said the same thing. There were a couple that had a fire school he'd attend every couple of years. One t-shirt shows that he was captain. But most just said Casper Fire Dept or had the emblem on it.  I had to fill in with 2 extra blocks so I added the year he started & the year he retired. I backed this with a light blue fleece that had trees & moose( is that the plural more more than one moose? lol) It was a surprise for him & my sister said he was thrilled. Yeah!
