This is easily the most funky, fun and fresh quilt I have ever made. To say that I loved every second of this quilt would be an understatement. Knowing how blessed we have been with the growth of our little company makes it hard for me to complain, but the thing I miss the most is the freedom to tinker with quilts and fabric all day long. So when I get an opportunity like this, it literally recharges my batteries.
This quilt came to us as a box of roughly 84 – 6” squares that the owner had been saving for 20 years. She had cut out directly on the graphic areas of the tees that she loved. I cleaned the squares up and started playing.
I laid them all out and then left them. Walked by and moved one or two. Jaime would walk by and move one or two. Finally after a few hours I knew I was happy. I sewed the top together just like a patchwork quilt ~ rows and rows of a patchwork quilt.
I had contacted the buyer and told her I had seen a tutorial post and wanted to finish her quilt the same way. So I used one of our great bamboo bowls off the display shelf to round my edges.
My hands look freakishly large in these pictures and yes, I know how bad my nails look. You will breathe a sigh of relief to know that all the girls got mani/pedi’s for Princess Fiona’s birthday.
We backed the quilt is white jersey (tee fabric) and serged the edges. This was my first serging project and I am hooked!
We will be adding this to the offerings on the new site and I cannot wait…okay, one more because I can!
Take good care,
