All Over the Place

 
I just finished quilting this T Shirt quilt for a customer. Football and lacrosse jerseys will remind a young man of his friends, team members and competitions in high school. I was happy to help his mother and aunt in getting this quilt finished for him.
 
 
I really didn't want to concentrate too hard so I decided to make a few fabric postcards.
 
 
To entertain myself, I made all the bindings different. My favorite is the middle on the top.
 
 
Years ago I made this quilt at a get-a-way. I was gaga in love with the black background border print. So much so, that I bought enough yardage to use for backing the quilt. Layered everything and finished the quilt.
 
 
Well, I totally forgot that I bought backing fabric for that get-a-way quilt. When I went out to Illinois to visit my mom, she took me to a wonderful quilt shop and I found the print in black and also the tan color way. I got so excited that I bought yardage for the backing of the quilt that I had already finished! And more fabric, to be on the safe side, of course. So I made a second quilt from a Bonnie Hunter pattern. I actually like the second quilt better!
 
 
So I have it loaded on my long arm frame, waiting for the quilt design fairies to make some suggestions.
 
 
Ironically, I had to piece the backing and keep adding strips because I didn't have enough yardage. Aaarrrgh! Please tell me you've done something like this!
 
And finally, a big thank you to the Pieced Together Quilters in Bridgewater, New Jersey. I so enjoyed meeting everyone and sharing my quilts last week. And I'm still kicking myself for not taking more of those delicious home made cookies. They tasted mighty fine on my drive back home!

    Great job on the t-shirt quilt, Terry! That young man will appreciate it!

    And the postcard quilts are beautiful. Will they coax spring to get here sooner? I like the middle binding too.

    Wonderful t-shirt quilt! The postcards are pretty. I like both of your quilts. The Bonnie Hunter pattern is especially striking. You’ve been quite busy!
