    I just finished quilting this for one of my customers. I should have taken a bigger picture of the tie dyed back, because it is so cool!

    I rarely do anything but pantographs for customers, but this quilt was not interfaced, leaving the shirts extremely stretchy and it was very difficult to quilt. I ended up doing the big loops spirals one handed, so I could hold the fabric down with the other hand. There was no way to work from the back of the longarm on this one!

    I love the hodge podge look of this quilt. However, I'm having a hard time figuring out how you pieced all the blocks together. Are there a lot of set in seams?

    Sorry..I just read that you didn't piece the top, a customer did.

    But, if anyone can figure it out, let me know! lol

    I can't believe they pieced it together without interfacing! That would have been a nightmare to piece and possibly to quilt? Wow!

    You did a great job. It is difficult to quilt one handed and you did well
