Years Bound Together

Sunday Sampler

  • When your family requests to sew something, you listen.
  • You pull all the stops.
  • You set aside some time.

So is the case this afternoon. While I’m typing, my eldest is fussy-cutting some old t-shirts into blocks for a t-shirt quilt.

We chose 11 inch diameters and that is not your usual choice. However, 11 is significant to us and so this will make the quilt that much more meaningful for years to come. So 11 it is.

We’ve even marked the ruler with some masking tape for quicker reference. I recommend this for first time quilters.

Here’s the chevron backing fabric. We’re making this into a rag style t-shirt quilt.

Easy Peasy

Directional cutting of the chevron fabric squares was left up to me.

More details next Sunday on the completed project.
