Finally Finished with Tee Shirt Quilt
Yesterday I finished putting the binding on the tee shirt quilt. Oh, am I ever glad it's done! I texted my brother and his fiance' to let them know, and I'm hoping they come over tonight and pick it up. If not, I will be delivering it to them within the next couple days.
This was one of my favorite tee shirt panels. It was from a ziplining adventure that my nephew went with us on a few years ago. I like the way the stitching looks like a zipline! Well, sorta... haha.
Some of the panels were not wide enough for the rows and needed to have pieces added to them on the side. I think things blended really well and these pieces worked out fine.
Here's another close up of a panel. Some of them were very thick with plastisol. That is difficult to needle through and keep tension in line. I also discovered it really dulls needles. I went through two new needles doing this quilt.
This was some of the stitching on the back. Nothing fancy in the quilting. Just really, really glad it's done.
