Very old t-shirt lap quilt

I keep discovering more things around the house I haven't yet added to my projects from my pre-garment sewing days! I don't know how I overlooked this, as I still use it all the time - it is showing its age and well-loved-ness, and some of the fabric is starting to wear through. It's probably time to make myself a new lap quilt and retire this one! 

The t-shirts are mostly from when I was a kid, with a couple from my teens, so there's a lot of nostalgia in here! And the sewing is not great, as I just winged it and didn't really know what I was doing! Not even really sure when I made this... Ten years ago maybe?

It's backed with organic cotton sherpa fabric, which has aged into something more like terry. The bias binding is also undyed organic cotton, just because I have a ton of it leftover from my old business.
