a second t-shirt quilt

One down! All finished. A t-shirt quilt, comprised mostly of my extensive 4th grade Olympics shirt collection. I organized it in a lighter to darker color pattern going diagonally.

I finished it with a blue floral backing and binding. The binding probably took me the longest, since I did it by hand, and got a cold right in the middle that slowed me down. I added some little white ties to hold it all together. The batting is not too thick, so it feels like a light summer quilt. Totally picnic ready.

I have one more t-shirt quilt that needs a back, and one already made in the closet. They will be great fort material someday.

I’ve sewed up three quilt tops in the past week. I’m definitely on a roll. Two are quilts made from some scrap fabric, and one is another t-shirt quilt. Then, I’ll have just like a half dozen whole quilts to actually finish. I’m feeling confident at this point, but that may change soon. What are you making lately?
