Well...I am making pretty good progress on at least one quilt on my "deadlines" list from Friday.
I started working on the T-shirt quilt on Thursday, mostly just doing prep-work. To me, that's the hardest/most tedious part of putting together a T-shirt quilt. I was given a large number of T-shirts to chose from, and since I had this fab camo material all set aside for this quilt, I chose to work with all browns. And then went through the stacks of brown T-shirts, eliminated any doubles...and got to work, assembly line style:
I do a rough cut of all the T-shirts, then fuse the shirts (I used Pellon 911FF), then trim them down. For these shirts, they were large enough that I trimmed them all to match my largest square ruler (15x15). Then it was time to lay them out, then get them sashed...and here they are:
Now...I decided at this point to add some borders (I may only add one), because the person to whom this quilt will belong is a tall fellow (I'll tell you the story of him when I finish this quilt, he's quite a character). So right now, that's where I'm at...sewing on some border(s).
Then I need to get the backing pieced. I'm excited for this one, the back has 3 more shirts, and will be pieced with a nice brown Kona that I picked up.
I even know how I'm going to quilt this one (I think).
So I best be getting to work!
