I have been meaning to create a t-shirt quilt for as long as I can remember and I have finally done it!!
I was looking through a course catalog of local adult courses you can sign up for, like I always do when the catalog arrives. I saw a t-shirt quilting class listed and next to it the name of my high school home ec teacher! I thought it would be hilarious to be her student yet again. I thought she would be floored at knowing that I was still sewing. Needless to say I signed up for the class right then and there. Mrs. Frazier, as I still call her because I just can't get used to calling her by her first name, was very happy to see me on the first class. I was telling her all my sewing endeavors and how she had been the one to inspire the love of quilts in me. I made my very first one in her class and I still have it and actually use it.
I knew right away what t-shirts I wanted to use. During my wedding/honeymoon in Italy I went a little nuts and bought 12 of the same Ciao Bella t-shirts that are very nostalgic, from the days when I studied in Florence. Off I went to work on the t-shirts with Ms. Frazier, and I have ended up with this great quilt!
The only thing I wish is, that I had been even crazier and bought more t-shirts to make it bigger. My husband would have killed me though so I guess a baby size will have to do. Perfect for the first kid (insert husband having a heart attack, haha) Don't worry it won't be for a while :)
The backing is fun sweatshirt material in navy blue. You can get a glimpse of it in this picture
Have you finally conquered a project you have been meaning to do for a while?
Take care mucho,
PS- You still have time to join the quilt along giveaway!
