6. But this has been the quilt that's been giving me fits. It's the 7th t-shirt quilt I've made. In fact, the quilt I started on when I took up this hobby was a T-shirt quilt for E. And I hadn't the faintest idea of how one actually made a t-shirt quilt. If I had--cut all the pieces exactly the same sizes, for instance, like any sane person, it would be a whole lot easier. But it's hard, hard work. A puzzle without a key. Then I increased the degree of difficulty by adding three or four different fabrics to the mix, and couldn't (for the life of me) allow dark blue to touch dark blue, etc. Oh the pain of it all. Then to square it up. Yikes.
So I have had these t-shirts for a year. Yes, an entire year without finishing this quilt for a colleague of Beve's.
I'm not sure I'll EVER do another T-shirt quilt.
But I sure love the way it turned out...
I have about 5 other quilt tops that need to be finished, but I can't show them off yet. They're gifts and I don't want to take the chance that the recipients might see them here.
Now, back to my machine.
It really is an obsession.
