    Red face 2nd T-shirt quilt done!

    Finally finished my 2nd race car theme t-shirt quilt.
    The top thread is white, the backing thread is light gray.
    The Quilting pattern I did on it is just meandering.
    Working with a red backing was the hardest I have ever come upon. I had to wash it 12 times and treat it twice with Retayne to get it to stop bleeding...talk about wanting to pull my hair out! haha.
    It is a super queen size and barely fit on my 10' frame haha.
    My friend's son was very pleased and loved it, he says its super warm...It took me about a month to make it just working at night for an hour or two every other day. I am so glad it is done now on to new projects!

    Sorry my pictures are not super clear, my camera was not being my friend haha.

    Very, very pretty. Wow, what kind of water bill? But the quilt is worth it, right. I like it.

    I love the black and white sashing. It really sets of the shirts.

    there is something about t-shirt quilts that I just love. I think that no two ever look the same and they are so personal. This one turned out great. I've just started cutting shirts of my daughters...too bad she doesn't want it quilted at all. I don't know what is wrong with that girl...lol.
    enjoy your life...it's the only one you have!!!

    Maybe the red was a problem but it surely does the trick for a happy quilt. Your meandering quilting is very good!
