Martha’s t-shirt quilt

I’m back!  Not quilting as much as I would like, but getting something accomplished.

This is my best friends quilt while it was still on the quilting frame.  I’ve actually completed it and will deliver it next week.  It has some really wonderful t-shirts like Elvis and Pooh.  I’m sure she’ll enjoy it for many years to come.

In this picture you can also see what a quilting machine actually looks like.  It’s quite large and takes up lots of space.  A normal ‘domestic’ machine is where you move the fabric under the machine.  With a quilting machine, you move the machine over the fabric.  The quilt layers are rolled on bars, similar to the old fashioned typewriters.  (probably found in antique stores!)  You can also see a portion of my ‘studio’ also known as Wandaland. I need to either organize better or take over the rest of the house!
