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.
