What a great t-shirt quilt! I had fun making this and Debbie loves it.
Last weekend I delivered a t-shirt quilt to Debbie, my best friend who lives in Bloomington, IN. These were t-shirts from their family vacations at Bent’s Camp in Wisconsin. It turned out absolutely beautiful and she loves it! Each shirt was designed by a family member and includes the names of everyone who attended that year. I also included three pictures that were transferred onto fabric. Two pictures Debbie took herself and one was a picture her sister, Donna, colored and gave to her. I’ll post pictures in the next day or so, but wanted everyone to know that Debbie’s t-shirt quilt is done and delivered. I had a great time working on her quilt and I know it will be used and loved.
Have a great weekend!
Just got back from a long weekend in Orlando, FL, at Stay & Scream at Universal Studios – 8 haunted houses, a new roller coaster, and at Islands of Adventure was the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. All totally amazing!
So – I didn’t get much quilting done at home, but I was able to do some hand work on a couple of applique blocks while sitting in the airports. These applique blocks are out of Civil War reproduction fabrics. A few years back (won’t say how many) this was a Block of the Month from the Quilts Plus quilt shop here in Indy. Then a couple years back (won’t say how many either) the Back Row Ladies from the Indiana State Quilt Guild (ISQG) did an exchange of 4 patch blocks in the same fabrics – so I think this will go together nicely. I have a couple applique blocks left to do then I can get them set into a quilt top. That’ll make a great project at the Jan. 2012 winter retreat.
Have a great day!
