Time for the New FO Party over at Cat Patches better known as the "just start something" party led by the great enabler Barbara.
It's always nice to look back at the month and realize, yes I did get something done, crazy busy but still finding time for sewing.
First up, a string quilt, it would have been easier to make it with just white blocks, but I love the feel and weight of string quilts plus I had a ton of white strings.
It may look familiar, I made one just a few months ago, a woman fell in love with it and had to have it for her future great grand-baby. The other one had pinks and lighter colors and we don't know if it's a boy or girl, so I promised I'd make another in more primary colors and we can switch them out if the baby is a boy :)
I call this a fake barn raising, it's not log cabin blocks. I made it just so I could quilt feathers on it! I decided I needed to stop practicing and just do it, they aren't perfect, but they're pretty and I'm happy to have finally made the leap.
This is my "Let's Book It" quilt, if you're not familiar with that wonderful idea, click the link and check it out.
And this mess is what I'm working on now, the T-shirt quilt that I had asked for tips on. I learned a lot, Thank You!
This is the pile of shirts
This is the pile after cutting, I left them big so after stabilizing I can cut them down to size without worrying about stretching. The hard part for me was cutting into someone's memories, I think the quilt will go together fairly easy.
She gave me a bunch of polyester athletic shirts that I haven't cut, I'm not sure about ironing them to the stabilizer, I'll test before I cut, but if you have any ideas I'd love to hear them.
That's it, not bad for a crazy month that had me out of the house a lot. Please jump over to Cat Patches and join in or just check out what everyone has started.
