A girl I work with came up to me and asked if I was interested in a project. Her son is now 23 and his days of playing in organized sports is over but he has all these jerseys left and instead of throwing them out, she has been saving them. I have quilted before but nothing like this, so when she asked me, with my "I can do anything I set my mind to" attitude, I told her I would. Ive gotten inspired by lots of images online and picked out the backing and batting. I plan on using a lot of scraps from the jerseys for added zip and with 18 jerseys with their backs... that gives me 36 decent squares of fabric to work with. The kicker is she wants pictures of him in his jerseys imposed on fabric. That is my greatest task. I'm not sure where to start so now I'm doing research.
