Working On The T-Shirt Quilt
I wrote before about my T-shirt quilt, inspired by a Jeans Quilt made by Jacinta. All the machine sewing of the squares is done now, and my aunt has helpfully blocked it out onto the backing we're using which is actually a duvet cover made of T-shirt material itself. It looks impressive:
There are 156 places where I have to hand-sew the quilt deck to the backing, plus a row of blanket stitch around the edge to fix the edge of the backing down ... it's about 3/4 done at the moment:
The best thing about working on a Really Big Quilt is you can use it to keep you warm while you work ...
(Although it occurs to me that by the height of summer this may end up being the worst thing about it)
I am loving this quilt very much!!!
