It all started with a pile of t-shirts and a picture on Pinterest.
Missy asked if I could make two big (20″) pillows for her daughter from old cheerleading t-shirts that she’d collected over the years. She wanted them in a mosaic style and showed me a picture of a quilt online that she liked. Sure, I was game. I’d never made a t-shirt quilt quite like this, but I was willing to experiment with some pillows for a Christmas present.
As I’ve said before, my co-workers and friends think I can do almost anything when it involves a sewing machine. It seems I get one project a year that stretches my limits. Cynthia…Megan…and now Missy.
Well, the pile of old t-shirts was E-N-O-R-M-O-U-S. I now have a full-size quilt top sandwiched and ready for quilting. I start on that tomorrow night once we discuss the quilting design (all over meander or individual block quilting). Will post a picture of the quilt and write-up of the my experience making this type of quilt after Christmas.
In case you were wondering, yes, the daughter is a Georgia Tech cheerleader.
