    I will post more later as I progress. These show to where I am now. I am using a layer of woven poly fabric from a bedruffle I deconstructed to stabilize the knit fabric. Also, on some I am using plaid flannel for backing. I am going to try QAYG on this. Another first for me, wish me luck!!

    worked away at them

    I like to cut on top of the hottub, it gives me lots of room and yes, it's a great room to be in too. And, when I work at it too long, the hottub is right there handy for me. LOL

    This quilt is going to be donated to a fundraising event for auctioning off. All the shirts came from groups and bands and people who support the venue.

    Great start you have there. Look forward to seeing what you do with these. You have a real knack for putting things together. Handy having that hot tub there...and the view is beautiful.

    What a coincidense, I'm making my first t-shirt quilt too!
    I'm making it for my daughter. I decided to make hers when I was asked by someone to make one for them ( I'll get paid for that one ). I figure I'll make one and get the kinks out first,then do theirs. The hardest part for me is trying to figure out the quilting of it. Oh well, we'll see....

    This is really neat. Now I see why a design wall is important to quilters. Thanks for sharing.
