I’m not sure if this qualifies as a quilt (versus a blanket), but since it has piecework, a backing & batting & binding, and is lightly quilted I’m going to call it a quilt.
One of my oldest longest (in time and in height) friends is a photojournalist who commissioned me to make a quilt with his old tees a few years ago. Through him, this is my third tee shirt quilt for a photojournalist!
This is the first one that I have framed the tees. I like the way it turned out, but I don’t know how much I liked the extra thought, math, work. Yes, I do… not much! Worth it, but this confirms for me again how I don’t think I will be taking up “real” quilting.
The back is navy/white flannel and the quilting is wavy lines diagonally across all the squares as well and vertically and horizontally along the cotton frames. All the stitching is in grey.
I feel really good that I have hardly any of the flannel or quilting cotton left over! I’m hoping to get it sent off soon, so she & her wife can see it (they wanted the final look to be a surprise)! Eep!
