As promised in my last WIP Wednesday post. Here is my nerdy t-shirt quilt. I cut up some old shirts of mine and my hubs and then fused some pellon featherweight interfacing to the back. So much ironing. That was the worst. Then I trimmed down the blocks to 12" x 15".
One side is my shirts.
..and the other side is mostly my hubs.
There are 4 blocks on his side that are actually my shirts. Can you guess which ones??
We are pretty nerdy as you can see... Here are some of my favorite blocks.
This one is for you Allison... you know who you are!
Hubs worked Katrina relief for a year.
We like Star Wars
Sometimes I don't know why we do research.
Throwback to my camp counselor days
Yeah Oct 23rd!!! (one mole is 6.02 x 10^23)
My favorite summer reading shirt. There are several in this quilt.
With all the interfacing, I opted out of using batting and just sewed the two sides together and then topstitched around the perimeter to finish it. I really did not like making the blocks but once they were made the blanket came together super fast! Say what you want about t-shirt quilts it is a great way to showoff those old beloved t-shirts that you just can't seem to part with. This guy will reside on the couch for a while.
EDIT: I completely forgot to say that I am linked up with Plum and June Monday link up. Check out what others have going on!
