T-Shirt Quilt...

I gotta tell ya,
this is looking better
and better all the time.

I have the back and front pieced.
Yes, a pieced back...how could I not?

front sneak peek...

 back sneak peek...

Now to sew it all together.
Then on to pinning and tying. 

I may not use batting.
Waiting on word from the commissioner.
edited to add:  yes, she wants batting, so batting it is.
Is that what one who commissions the quilt is called???
Then, would that make me the commissionee???
Yes?  No?

The back is denim,
which is a lot heavier to work with
than what I'm used to handling.
It's hard on my neck and shoulders,
so I'm having to take a few
more breaks than normal.

It's a dreary, dismal day.
Perfect for spending time
with my Naomi Janome.
Though, gotta tell ya,
she was acting a bit
temperamental earlier.
Breaking thread every 3-4 inches.
Once I changed the needle,
she was back to her sweet sewing self.

I'm anxious to get the quilt done.
Some fun projects waiting.

I just love those T-shirt quilts...especially for those young-uns who wear all those Ts. You're doing a great job! I don't envy you plowing through denim though, tough going! Happy quilting!

It really looks like it would be a hard project to do. I am sure like everything you do it will turn out great. I can't wait to see what you move on too.

It is looking good and a fun project. Can you imagine how fun it would have been to keep our old t's from the 60's and 70's, lol.
