My 22 year old niece is in the process of making her first t-shirt quilt!! Did she come to me for advice? Nope. She went on line and did all the research, then just went to doing it!! She did go with her mom (my sister) to Hancock's and bought rotary cutter, rulers and cutting mat! THEN, they called me! HeHe..that is to borrow some quilt books! She has already stabilized and cut her t-shirts, laid out her blocks, purchased the fabric for sashing and backing and has done an excellent job so far. I haven't seen the actual layout but she did show it to me on her iPhone! She is going to be an algebra teacher so the math was no problem for her!! LOL She is sewing the blocks together this weekend and they went to get batting yesterday at 40% off. Now she did ask my opinion on that and on different terminology that she was unsure of. She left with 4 of my quilt books (think I will get them back? I don't care if I don't!!) The worst part was my sister asked me how many quilts "I've" completed so far. Ok, SISTER, hush!!
Anyway, I'm just so excited that she is interested in quilting. Both my sisters and I have sewn most of our lives and our mother made just about everything we wore so my niece does know what a sewing machine is and how to operate it. And this girl child is very very smart and she's going to make an excellent teacher. I am just as proud of her as if she were my very own child!! I will try to get a pic and post it when she's finished!!
