Daughter Carol's significant other, Jon, has requested t-shirt quilts for his two baseball lovin' sons. I've wanted to try a t-shirt quilt for years, so I agreed to give it a try!
My dining room has turned into quilt central. I'm hoping to have all of the shirts cut apart and backed with fusible interfacing by Thursday so that Carol and Jon can arrange the blocks when they're here for Thanksgiving.
These won't be traditional quilts. Carol and Jon found some beautiful polar fleece at JoAnn Fabrics on Thursday. I picked it up on Friday, and the polar fleece is ready to go. Yesterday, Mom and I went shopping for muslin and interfacing. I made pretty good progress yesterday afternoon, so I think my goal is achievable!
So, why did Mom need muslin?
Mom finished an Irish Chain quilt top for my brother David's teardrop camper. We took it to a quilt shop for the quilting. It turned out so well, my sister Janet requested one. I have plenty of fabric around, except for muslin. Luckily, Mom loves to go shopping with me! We have everything ready to go for Mom's project.
Yes, we have turned into Quilt Central!
