Thanks for all the compliments but I STILL don’t have that picture placed in the header so I will keep trying. If you see this photo again in the post, please don’t think I intended to post it ….again. I was sure I followed the directions – evidently not so I will try later today. This will be a big day for posts because I’m going to show you the shirt quilt and then in a separate post I’m going to do a machine binding tutorial. And that will be the title so you can find it again when you need it.
Remember these two men’s shirts, both by the same company but slightly different tropical prints?
I cut both shirts into squares – I got 70 squares, 5-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ with a few little scraps left over.
One shirt was 2XL and one was L. I planned a couch quilt 7 x 10 blocks with sashing and cornerstones, the easiest most traditional pattern possible. Here it is on the quilting machine last night.
I plan to use this quilt for the machine binding tutorial later today.
I will show you some close ups at that time.
Don’t forget September 1 we will post the 2 Hour Couch Quilt. Here’s a little hint:
Hard to see anything, huh?
Sugar Maple quilt pattern still available for $3.00 sent with an address label and/or a business size of envelope to Country Threads, 2345 Palm Ave. Garner, IA 50438.
Sugar Maple will be available only until September 15. If you want this pattern, please order now. We can only make one or two patterns available at a time since we are not set up for multiple orders and not everyone remembers to tell me which pattern they are ordering — hint hint.
Look for the next post later today.
