|T Shirt Memory Quilt|
There is always a deadline with commissioned work and that keeps me pushing through. This is for a college graduation in December. It is for a man, so we chose grey fabric to outline the shirt patches. Once the t shirts are all backed with interfacing and put together as a quilt top, I am excited. Let the fun begin... Quilting.
|Quilting Around T Shirt Designs|
Quilting t shirt quilts with free motion is great practice. Most of the quilting is outlining the emblems on the shirts. You don't want to poke a hole in the rubberized (or whatever that stuff is) designs or you may cause them to start peeling away.
I always like to put the recipients name on the quilt somewhere. It makes the quilt even more personal. This one is 54" x 72" and will be a nice, manly throw.
All that is left to do is deliver this quilt and receive my commission to...BUY MORE FABRIC!
The fabric in this quilt is Moda Marble in Charcoal. It came from the Fat Quarter Shop, my preferred way to buy fabric. Fast and friendly service is just one of the reasons it's my first stop for fabric and notions.
