Certainly. Tho I have put some on my blog if you want to read it sooner. The tshirt one, not the I spy one smile

I know, but I wanted to give you some variety :D 

My next project is to clean out the sewing room, and get some hard flooring in there. I have wanted it since the beginning, but wanted to have the cash saved, ya know?! :D

I sure enjoyed looking at all of your lovely quilts.  Thanks for sharing.

Glad you enjoyed.  I actually had started 2 posts but never finished them. So it is up to date except for the batch in progress now.

That will be a big job but it will be wonderful to have hard flooring in your sewing room.  Good for you deciding to save for it ahead of time!

Thanks for posting the link to your blog.  The T-shirt quilts you've made are terrific and it looks like the recipients thought so too!  Such happy smiles!!

So I had to find some older fabric today so in getting down to that in the sewing room I found 2 piles of T-shirts I'd been saving to use for DJ.  They are just getting too bulkly to pile as whole shirts.  I was thinking to cut them down to just the image I want to use.  Should I use and iron on stabilizer for the back before I cut down or just over cut the image/logo and store without?  If so, can you remind me of the product you recommend to use?  I know you've likely shared this with me before but...  you know...  I have brain fade periodically!  Thanks.  


Or for your first cut on the t-shirt is easier to cut a bit oversized so you do not have to struggle with lots of bulk to put the stabilizer on.  I ususally just cut the design with a generous part all around and wait for stablizer till just before I use.
