Or two... in the works. :-D
So awhile ago I posted a blog asking for ruined Threadless shirts - shirts that people just don't wear anymore, and aren't able/don't want to sell. The plan? Make a quilt from those tees!
Some people responded, and I've been able to get started!!!
UPDATE 3: blonde8007 also sent shirts!!
In fact, I now have enough tees to make 2 quilts. So in addition to the one I'm making for myself, I'm making a quilt to auction/raffle off for charity. (Charity TBD - I have some ideas, but if anyone else knows of a great charity, send me the details.) EDIT: I wanted anyone who really cared to have a shot, not just the people with the largest check... I couldn't figure out how to do an online raffle with all the weird laws for raffles, so instead, I'm having a contest to win the quilt!
Here are the tees I have, all cut up into 11x11 inch squares. Their final sewn size will be about 10x10 inches, and the quilts will be 7 squares x 7 squares. So each quilt will have 49 squares with printed designs. (Plus there will be a solid-colored border - the back will also be solid.) The final size - approximately 80" x 80" - will be large enough to go on a full- or queen-sized bed.
UPDATE 4: Quilt for
charity contest is being constructed! And I've even got photo evidence!!
Here are the squares for the quilt
I'll auction/raffle off for charity that I'm giving away in the contest. I put fusible interfacing on the back of all 49 squares - took way more time than I anticipated!
And columns of squares, just waiting to be sewn together!
Three columns sewn together! 4 more to go!
UPDATE 5: Top is almost done, just needs the border
