Well, the big day is almost here. Hope that you are all ready for it.
The weather here is not co-operating at all- ice has been our normal now for
2-3 days. I shouldn’t complain at all because I still have heat and electricity.
Last week, I quilted a T-shirt quilt for a friend. She too was completing the
quilt for a dear friend.
Barb did a great job and I was happy to get it done on time for her to
make the binding and add it to the quilt.
This is one of the blocks that made up the quilt. Who can reisist
Homer? Although, I am not a fan of his.
The owner of these T-shirts loved soccer so I had to make
sure that I stitched at least one soccer ball into the quilt
I used a polyester thread for the top and backing. Whatever color
made up the block, that is what I used. This lessens tension issues quite
alot and makes my job easier.
Here is one of the 4 wallhangings that my sister wanted me to
do for her LAST year. I seem to be behind in alot of things.
It is a cute panel she picked up at Len’s Mills.
Wallhanging #2 turned out pretty cute too.
I really like the poinsetta’s on this wallhanging.
These two wallhangings above were quilted on my longarm but
the next one I will show you was quilted on my domestic Janome.
Now, I remember once again why I bought a longarm. I really
dislike having to move the fabric like crazy. And my neck was not
happy with me when I was done.
Again, another panel from Len’s Mills. Hoping
that she will like them all. I am sure that she will be
surprised that I have 3 of the 4 finished and only 1 year late.
I hope that you enjoyed this eye candy.
One thought on “Merry Christmas!”
I love the t-shirt quilt. I’m also jealous of your awesome soccer ball. Merry Christmas.
