I finished the t-shirt quilt for my oldest son. I had planned on making him one for a long time so when he cleaned out his room when he was leaving for college I stacked all those t-shirts up and there they sat. He is in his junior year at college and thought I better get this done. So I cut and interfaced a lot of shirts! I had over 30 and used most of them.
I thought I would send it out to have it long armed but really didn't want to spend the money so I decided I would quilt it. I found the design after spending some time over at Leah Day's Blog. Lots of ideas and videos of how to do it. I also thought tackling this one block by one block would be helpful. I liked the way it turned out. Still need to work on staying on the same stitching line and lining up my stitches when I start and stop. They always seems to jar off. But you I am getting better each time I do it and once you stand back and look at it. it looks pretty darn good!
Recently, I had just finished a quilt for our bed at our cottage. The room has all paneling (hate it) so this definitely will brighten the room up. I started it back in March at a retreat. The pattern was from Moda Bake Shop and was call Ruby, Pearl, and Opal Quilt. I had this quilted at my LQS. I loved the daisy like flower. I put Kona butter on the back. I had picket up a layer cake of Terrain by Kate Spain and then a few pieces of what I could find along with some Good Fortune as well. When I decided I wanted it bigger I added the solids in as well. I am not real good an keeping fabric colors or names of what I use. If I like it I buy it and use it. I love the bright colors in this one for sure.
Let's hope I can get another quilt finished this weekend! I have linked up for the first time at both places!
Can I get a Whoop-Whoop?
Finish it up Fridays
