Very handsome, Cathy. 

Making a T-shirt quilt for the first time can be intimidating and I'm glad to see you were up to the job.  Next one won't be as scary. wink

Cathy the t-shirt quilt looks awesome. I am sure they will be over the moon.

Well partly the challenge, partlt I do not have much wall space left.relaxed

Congrat,Congrats, it does look great.  I like the filler blocks.

What a great looking quilt!  The gold just pops.  You even put some pinwheels in there with the tees.  They're going to love it!

Hello Everyone

I went to a 3-day retreat this past weekend and had a wonderful time visiting with friends, sewing and enjoying good food! I actually finished all that I had on my list, except for binding on 2 table runners. I used up the fleece that I was going to give away and made them into blankets for Children's Hospital. We had an estate sale at the guild meeting a few months ago and I I got 2 projects for free. I decided to go ahead and finish them and they turned out nicely. I also made 2 purses, one for each granddaughter. One is a Unicorn purse and the other is a Princess.

I am still unpacking and hope to get the binding done by tomorrow.

 But then you realize that you can put this filler block here and that filler block there and take da! It's done!

That was my method.  If I needed a little bit to size up I added a small strip of black filler.  Once I got started, it went together pretty quickly.

You can start rotating quilts and wall hangings every 3 months or buy a bigger house, or build a studio with lots of wall space.relaxed

Thanks for all the positive comments on the t-shirt quilt.  Some of the credit goes to Ellen and Carrie, my advisors.   The next one will be easier.
