    There are some close up pictures in my album "My quilts" if you would like to look at them and one from before it went to the longarmer.

    Very cute quilt, fourpaws..... I've thought about doing a t-shirt quilt for my SIL but he hasn't gone through the t-shirts yet. I like the placement on yours.

Don't feel guilty because this is your first finish! Every finish counts, feels good too doesn't it? You are on a roll now to get the other cabin quilt done! Great finish, very pretty quilt!

    Thanks, Nancy. I thought that anything with a printed picture was a cheater fabric.... Yup, have one more of these to go and then I've got another quilt sitting there waiting to be finished. I really want to get some of these UFOs done..... to think...... I used to never start a quilt until I had the one I was working on finished...... I'd like to get close to that again. I don't like the stress of having so many things undone!

    When I took the class to learn how to make this, the instructor was great, she is an out of the box kinda person. Not having all blocks the same size, or lining everything up from top to bottom. they are line up across but not in columns. I like that. Another customer has given me 60 shirts to do for him, told him they would be atleast 3 or 4 quilts and he likes that idea. all his racing shirts.

    I have 3 other people who want me to let them know what the cost would be for me to do them.

    Very cute quilt Cindy! You had that TShirt quilt for 2 years and it wasn't even your project? Wow! You have a very patient customer! The person you did that quilt for will appreciate waiting 2 years when she/he sees that quilt!

    BoJangles...........there is a reason behind me having it 2 yrs, right after they gave me the shirts I found out I had lung cancer and wasn't doing any quilting for about a year. I had a lung removed and then recovery. They were very understanding and in no hurry to get it back, I think it started out as wanting to get them out of their house. When I delivered it to them yesterday afternoon, they both were estatic about how it turned out.

    I finally got back to working on some more UFO's...3 twin toppers. The 1st is Pretty Pony Cathedral Star...3 dimensional. The pinwheels around outside are the leftovers from the inner stars...everything got used so no waste. The 2nd is a BOM bought from Hancock fabrics about 5-7 years ago. Bought at the end of the season on sale, missing month 11 so I used the little bits of leftovers & made a block (had just enough to do it). The 3rd is a scrappy batik/blenders BOM from Persimmon quilts website a couple years ago. I think these make a total of 8 UFO's finished for the year so far.
