T-Shirt Quilt Fixed and Beautiful

Sometimes I get projects from clients that need some tender loving changes to make them into a great quilt. This T-shirt quilt had been started by the girl that is going to receive it for Christmas.

She had cut the logos (roughly) and tried to make a collage out of them. They had been attached to a piece of fleece with yarn. Of course, they were rolling on the edges and the client did not know how to finish the quilt.

I took the logos apart and reframed them with fabric. Some of the logos were cut to close to the edges and I lost part due to the quarter inch seam I needed to add the new fabric. Even when things do not work out as planned, it is still possible to fix them and create a great quilt to snuggle into.

Speaking of snuggling, my other helping hand insisted we snuggle just a bit before I could finish this post.

So here is the finished quilt. It has been transformed into a lap quilt out of the logos that had started their journey differently. Once again, this is a finished piece and is ready to go to the client.
