well, i did it! i have successfully completed the fella’s t-shirt quilt. i am so glad i finished it during my vacation – with a day to spare, even!
this was a hell of a project. when i tackle mine, i think i will do a few things differently:
- actually have a pattern or gameplan before i start cutting and sewing
- figure out materials i will need in advance and buy them in one trip, rather than 8 or 9 trips to hobby lobby, walmart, and hancock fabrics
- be more careful overall with corners/straight edges/measuring; possibly make a frame if i can make my t-shirt squares all the same size
- possibly quilt as i go; the fella’s is not actually quilted (and i may still add ties); next time, i am considering sewing the sashing onto the squares onto the backing all in one, but that may not actually happen
here are some photos of the project. i am so glad to be done with it! and the fella loves it; he used it while watching a movie last night and brought it to bed with him. 🙂
