Food for thought.

Memory is a wonderful treasure chest for those who know how to pack it.

T-shirt quilt off the long arm

I fretted about doing this customer quilt as I had never done a t-shirt quilt AND I was going to back it with the dreaded minky.  Even though I had used minky recently on a baby quilt which worked out great.....this was KING SIZED!!!
I used a medium sized meander.
Here's a shot at the minky backing.
Here's the completed top....all 92 x 122" of it!!!
I used a silver So Fine thread for the top and an Aurifil purple for the bobbin with a very thin Mountain Mist poly batt.   
Well,  I can now say for sure, working with minky is NOT a problem and T-shirt quilts aren't any harder than any other quilt.  I am pretty happy with how it turned out and I am sure my customer will be just as happy. 
Now, I have to bind it.  So, I guess I won't mind if it gets really cold out while I am doing this as it is going to keep me plenty warm while it is in my lap as I  hand stitch down the binding. 
If you don't hear from me for a few days, I will probably be hibernating under this quilt with needle and thread in hand. 


  1. That is a very large quilt and you took control of it! Great job!

  2. I admire you for getting this big of a project done! Way to go!
