Tshirt Quilt Sunday!
I have a friend who wants to give her daughter a Tshirt quilt made from her "Girls on the run" shirts...for CHRISTMAS! She asked me to help her just the other day and my mind was trying to figure out HOW in the world we can get this done before Christmas with all else that I have going on here.
I told her to pick up the interfacing for stabilizing the shirt logos, and we would raid my stash for the fabrics to go with it. I had the perfect fabric (thanks to Finn!) for pulling it all together in the border...all the colors of the window framing we used come from the colors in the border, and the words RAH!! will continue to cheer her daughter on as she continues to run.
It was fun having her here yesterday....she fused, I cut, we sewed...and by 9pm last night the top was done.
She how has the job of picking up some backing fabric so we can get the quilting done on it..I have already told her that the binding will be HER JOB! :cD
It was an easy quilt to make. The tshirt blocks were cut 12.5"..the frames and sashings are 2.5" cut strips....the cornerstones are 2.5" squares from the ends of the framing strips....I busted stash and we had fun!
