Now, facing the piles of shirts that need to be cut up, I'm feeling a little overwhelmed.
It may not look like it, but there are at least 50 shirts here. This weekend I had her divide the piles into the ones that must be in the quilt down to the ones I would use as fillers.
Now I just have to get all of these shirts cut up and interfacing ironed on by next Thursday night. Why Thursday, you ask? Friday I go to a quilt retreat and was hoping to put the top of this puppy together then. I have my work cut out for me with at least 3 basketball games between now and then! Let's hope that they all look like this by then!
Six down, only a few dozen more to go. Did I mention that I have to redesign the pattern because several of her shirts don't fit the 12" blocks that the pattern call for? I guess if I don't get it all ready before the retreat, I could always do it there.
So excited to get a weekend of sewing, where I don't have to cook for, clean up after, or bathe anyone but me!
