Polar fleece maybe, but if they are cotton tshirts, cotton backing works very well. Just my opinion. I know, keep customer happy. I've made a few of those tshirt quilts and used cottong flannel for back. Worked well.

    they want something that will be durable. I am trying to discourage the microfiber as everything I have found is 100% polyester. I suggested using a cotton flannel and they don't want flannel but it looks like they will be open for cotton backing. They want something strong and durable, so I figure it would be better to get a wide backing instead of piecing the 44 inch fabric. I have never used a sheet for my backing and would be leary to do so. And yes I will be quilting it on my domestic machine.

    Why don't ya git a pillowcase w/the fabric ya want, make a sandwich & try it out. Ya could even try several different fabrics so that ya know what ta tell 'em.

    At least we know that if we buy quality fabric, it is durable as it is going to get. Even the microfiber wears. I certainly hope they will not be using this t-shirt quilt for a picnic blanket, then it might not last either way. I feel you will do great with your choice. Go for it girl. You are used to it and will domestic machine quilt much easier and you will be more comfortable so you can get it done.

    Alright, I am 'officially' in the challenge. ;0))

    HELP me get this off my design wall. I did make some progress, but it wasn't very fun! I am trying NOT to do anything else until I do something with this one. And I have plenty else to get to. A finished table runner top, a basket woven 'practice' table runner that needs a back, one quilt top basted ready to quilt, and SIX finished ready to sandwich. Another top that just needs a last border. I also have lots of 'ideas' that I have done some cutting on.
    I am seeing so many gorgeous things, it makes me feel even lazier! lol

    I've been lurking and enjoying all your triumphs. Joined 2012 UFO challenge and was a dismal failure. Most of my projects are queen size so it takes a lot to finish them. This year I have finished two bed size quilts for Jan. and Feb, hope this is a sign of things to come. There are still at least 12 waiting. So please wish me luck, hope I can keep the momentum.

    Laura ya could pick out several o' those other blocks ta go around the star & add different borders ta 'em till they fit tagether. I just love how borders can fix "a multitude o' sins." (Sorry old sayin', it really means mistakes.)

    Thanks Bev. I think I am going to pull the star for a table topper, and see if I can just stick that other stuff together. If not, NewBee needs to get ready for a box!! lol

    I am working on stuff though. I basted and got the binding ready for a basket weave piece I had played with. Hello table topper!! lol

    Laura, I love your blocks! If those were my sample blocks I'd put the star in my quilt too. I don't have a picture but a group did a sampler called Just Takes Two last year, it had a big star and loads of other types of blocks and it was fantastic! I think it's such a great idea to make your sample blocks out of like colors! You end up with a fun sampler quilt some day. And who knows... In 100 years someone will remake it and start a following. Do I hear DearLaura?

    I've been working on some UFO baby quilts; have 2 done, one quilted, 2 ready to quilt and another top almost ready to go. Was hoping to get it all done this week. Now my sister's coming next week and all we will do is talk, but she's making a GFG from vintage fabric and we're going to raid my stash for additional hexies. Will be fun to work together and talk!

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Ahhhh Wildyard, your welcome. That is the main reason I like to drop in on this one as well and the UFO, both are so encouraging and helpful. That is how I finished a top was here getting a couple of ideas on how to do setting blocks. is fun to see the UFOs progress.

Its the funny little lady bug blocks. If I don't get off the QB and back to the sewing part she will beat be here! I will post a pic on the challenge thread when I am done.

    OBW: The mama is having twins and my sister in Vermont is making the little boys quilt! She's not done either....it runs in the family! lol

    For March I am going to be working on a quilt I have everything cut for at a retreat next weekend. My goal is to get the top all together and then be ready to quilt it when I get home. Then I will start assembling some swap blocks into a lap quilt.

    I enjoyed that ladybug fabric missgigglewings. Will be nice to see it in a quilt.

    We are setting March goals huh, well then, I am going to finish that Broncos quilt that I have been working on for several months. If things go my way, then it should be done by next week. I am then going to finish a project that I started the first of the year, a mystery quilt, that i do not want to turn into a total ufo. If I get those done, will finish up some Civil War Blocks that I want done for someone. These three things will make me feel accomplished. Last year I was doing 10 a month. I am wondering how in the world I did that.

    My March goal is to finish the last 3 rows of my Irish Chain quilt - and make a dent into sewing the rows together. I've got no idea how long it will take me, so I'm not making any promises, but maybe I can finish sewing all the rows together.
