It is just possible I have a new favorite quilt. I got the 8 1/2 inch rag square die from Accuquilt and cut up the pieces of t shirt I have been saving forever. I sewed them together 6x6 in about an hour. It is totally finished. No quilting, no binding. What is more comfy than your favorite t shirt? A quilt made from your favorite t shirt!
The hardest part was not catching all of the fringe every time I sewed a seam. I used my scissors to help hold the fringes down because I tried to use my finger and kept hitting it with the sewing machine. Ouch!
Once I got the hang of how to sew and not hit myself, it was easy. I used a narrow zig zag stitch so the seams could stretch a bit, just like the fabric so there would be less of a chance of popping a seam.
I finished it off by sewing all the way around the edge.
I love the randomness of the colors and the white squares inbetween everything.
I love it all! It's in the dryer now, getting the fuzz off and will be ready for a kid to cuddle with soon.
I also managed to get a couple more quick quilts quilted up today and there are still a few hours left. I always feel better when I am getting things done. Much better than feeling sorry for myself.
