Don't forget to enter the gift certificate and pattern giveaways! Today is the last day!
I offered to make a t-shirt quilt for my aunt. She has lots and lots of t-shirts from her travels, and I thought it might be a fun way to hang onto them.
I just went with a basic grid layout. Did my research a bit and just went with it. It all worked out really well.
Quilted it all over with swirly loops, and bound with a black polka dots. I did quilt the names of their fuzzy friends into the sashing: Captain Morgan (who is not doing well right now), Sweetie, Luigi, Geena Davis, Freya, and Squirrelly Bee.
The backing I love, more than every other backing I've found before. It's so perfect for these travelers - they really do fly all over the world. Headed to Panama after Christmas! So this one is headed out early so they get it well before Christmas.
One gift done, a gazillion to go! Which reminds me - come back next Monday for my Santa's Sweatshop Linky Party. It's going to be open until the 26th of December, and you can link up all your gifts. I've got a bunch of fabulous prizes (gift certificates, fabric, patterns) from fabulous sponsors (Westwood Acres, FQS, and Red Chair Quilts, to name a few).
