Finished The Quilt Top For My Friend’s T-Shirt Quilt

It took me long enough! I figured I had better do some work on it since the weather here is getting very cold, very quickly. It was 45 degrees when I woke up this morning! I know she probably wants her quilt soon, so I finished the top last night, and I might even pin it today! We shall see! Wish me luck!

Back To The T-Shirt Quilt

I had to take a break from this quilt this week because I have just been swamped with work and other shenanigans! Today I sat down and cut out all of the blocks, and now I am adding sashing to them to make them all nice and framed. I was going to do all black and brown bordes, but a little bit of blu, red, and queen really spice things up and make it a bit more contemporary. What do you guys and gals think?

Working On The T-Shirt Quilt

I did quite a bit of work on the T-shirt quilt I am in the middle of. I decided to do a little bit of thread embellishment just to add a little something something.¬† I think it is turning out quite nicely. I ended up using¬† fusible stabilizer and it is working great. I’m still using a walking foot, but it is going very nice!

Started Framing The T-Shirt Blocks

I got motivated today to sew. I just got bit by the sewing bug, and now I’m on a role. I started framing the shirts in black and brown fabric. I haven’t had time to go get stabilizer r interfacing today, so I’m only working with the thicker shirts right now. I just love this idea! I think I might make one for myself out of some old shirts once I am done with this one!

Doing A T-Shirt Memory Quilt!

I’ve gotten a new project to work on! A dear friend of mine asked me to make a memory shirt out of her late husband’s shirts. I cannot wait to dive in, but I have a question for all of my fellow sewists: How should I stabilize the shirts so that when I cut them I get proper squares, and they stay that way? So far I have 2 ideas about what to do: use iron on embroidery stabilizer, or use iron on batting and use quilt as I go method. Anyone know what else I can do? I really want to make it awesome!
