New project...

I have been thinking about doing this for along time, but am finally getting started! Very excited. It's a tshirt quilt, made up from old favourites that have been worn to death or outgrown. We pass most clothes onto other people or the Opshop, but there are always a few that mean something special (perhaps a joke or a lovely memory) that are hard to let go.

So far all I've done is a lot of cutting and placing. The photo is to remind me of how I hope to sew it all together, and I'm sharing it with you for a bit of accountability! I need people to remind me to do this, because I think it will be great, but I'm not so good at projects that take longer than an hour...

So watch this space and I won't be offended by any gentle reminders and queries about how the quilt is going!

  3. get into it girl...wont take long once you get started...you've probably taken the most time already...cutting and placing...dont forget to show us the end result...good job...great idea...
    I have been keeping my big kids hand me downs for the same idea...have done one and they loved it...the quilt ends up so soft and cuddly...as well as all those memories...

  4. Brilliant idea Mezz, love the variety of designs.

    I'm sure you'll get it finished you'll be keen as to use it.
    Maybe do it in stages, so it's not all consuming....
