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.
Loaded into the frame and Crystal Rose (my APQS Millenium) and I have begun the quilting.
Here are a few closeups of the quilting on this t-shirt quilt.
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.
Do you have any t-shirts that need to be transformed? Are your drawers filled with t-shirts that you have collected from different events or activities you participated in during your past? If so, consider contacting me and let’s see what we can make so those t-shirts are being used and so you have more space.
