The Dr is In

As promised, here is one of the many finishes while I was "offline".

A few years ago, my roommate from college reached out to me and asked if I would make a quilt with her husbands t-shirts as a surprise for him.  At the time of the request, I was working on the first set of Marine T-shirt Quilts and thought "how will I ever get to this".  Well I said yes with the caviat that this may take awhile.  

She is a HUGE fan of batiks so I knew I'd be incorporating batiks into the design.   Other than that, there was no major requests.

I spent a weekend cutting, ironing and trimming which resulted in this top.  It was actually a ton easier than most of the T-shirt quilts I have done, because there were so many large logos.

I picked a Batik for the back.  It was quilted by Melissa at Sew Shabby Quilting.  I picked Square Dance for the overall quilt design, just because I thought it looked cool.

The final quilt looks Great!  I hand delivered it on my next visit and they LOVED it!  It is proudly displayed and used by everyone in the house while snuggling on the couch.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you will continue to follow me on this journey.

I'm Back after a very long break.  It has been several years since I last updated this blog.  WOW!  Time flies! To be honest, things have not only been crazy busy, but I lost the login/passcode information. But I recently found the information, among many other things, while cleaning out my sewing room.  LOL!

I am thrilled to be back on and looking forward to sharing my adventures with you in the coming weeks and months.

There have been MANY completions and I will post many of them with details in the coming weeks.  I hope you will follow along.
