Two full size done

It has been a busy weekend. Hubs was away hunting so I took advantage of the time.

Saturday I finished the first T Shirt quilt and have binding stitched down.

The back

Here is the second... the problem child. I started with a very nice panto of swirls and a heart. After a row and into the second row all hell broke loose. Nothing worked. Here it 2 pm, frustrated I through my hands up and walked away for a few hours.

Now back at the frame I changed threads and went to town emulating the digital pattern on my own. Talk about quilt till you drop... I finished it at 9 pm last night. Trimmed it and left my sewing room a disaster. So today you know what has to happen first in there.

The back...I had to expand the fabric by adding a slice. If that isn't enough, I had to add a 4 inch piece on the length for the rollers ugh!

It's done and beautiful. Yes the grass is yucky looking and I admit being too lazy to walk down to the rope between trees to hang these quilts.

Today I promised my self to work on the next step of Easy Street.

  1. We take the bad with the good as professional quilters. And we learn to make lemonade.

  2. Way to go on the finishes and on the successful problem-solving. :)

  3. They look great and the best part is that no one will know you were having a problem with one of them.


Gribbit - I'd love to hear from you.
