why plastic bags come with warnings - gotta watch this little fella!
last weekend, jacey, liz and gabi encouraged me to start putting together a t-shirt quilt for M out of his old concert t-shirts that were just sitting in a bag in my sewing room. i sorted through the shirts, and since there were sooooooo many, jacey suggested making TWO quilts - one with the concert t-shirts and a second with sports and university shirts.
bat and ringo thought this was a stellar idea. at least, they would have if they hadn't snoozed through the discussion!
late sunday night and monday i roughly cut out the designs from the concert shirts. there are a lot. seriously. and most are pretty large. this is going to be a pretty big quilt!
ringo found this to be pretty exhausting!
tuesday night i ironed on interfacing to the back of about half the pieces and trimmed them down, and tonight i'll finish.
M's out-of-town job isn't going so well, so it looks like he'll be gone longer than expected. if i can pick a sashing fabric, it looks like i'll be able to get the top finished before he comes back!
