Finishing Up the T-Shirt Quilt!
So, I’ve been gone from Blogdom for a while. The holidays just took over and that was my only focus for a while!
I did get the t-shirt quilt finished in time for Christmas. I finished sewing on the label at 8:30pm Christmas Eve!! Oh well, it was fun and he REALLY liked it! That was the point!
Here’s where I left off with my last blog post. The top was completed and ready to go to the quilters (AKA “Mom”).
Got it back from my Mom a few days later and got busy on the binding.
I knew in the back of my head that I was not going to let this quilt get out the door without a label!! It’s happened too many times where I took until the last minute to finish the quilt and never got the chance to add one.
So…I made sure I built enough time into the finishing and I was happy with the finished result. Normally, I print the label on prepackaged paper backed fabric. However, I just read an article about a woman who prints her message on the computer (in whatever font she likes), puts a piece of fabric over the paper and traces the message in her own hand.
What a great idea!!
I decided to give it a try and I was really happy with the results. Here’s what it looked like!
It’s personalized but neat.
In my next post I’ll talk about putting the finishing touches on the rag quilt/table runner. The fun continues!
