T-Shirt Quilt in the Making

Hi All!
I’ve been sewing a little - or rather, preparing to sew.  I’m linking my project today with Kelly’s “Needle and Thread Thursday.”  I still haven’t figured out how to make the link work by clicking on the picture so please just click on the link I copied below to see what others are doing on Thursday.

Here’s a photo of the t-shirts I’ve cut up.  I’ve made all 17 inch x 17 just to make sure I have enough. I’ll cut them down to the size needed after I iron them to the interfacing.  These are 20 cut-up t-shirts.

And, of course, I saved many scraps in case they’re needed and saved some for dusting and cleaning rags and still, I have this trash can full of scraps.

So, I’m ready to get started on that but I needed a break from t-shirts so made this pincushion for my swap partner in a pincushion swap.  My partner likes crazy quilting so...

That is all.

Monday Making

I hope everyone had a beautiful Easter.

It’s “Monday Making” day at Beth’s Love Laugh Quilt blog. 
Here’s the link because I’m still having trouble making the link an actual link.  I need another blog publisher. Well, no, actually I need to learn how to use this app because I paid for it :(

Today I’m showing my blocks for It’s a Wild Life Block of the Month.  

  For the month of February we had two leaves to make.

In March we made these cute little deer. I still need to do a revision on mine since it seems that I sewed the applique wrong on the deer that is lying down. Her back leg is all wrong :)

Now the April block is up and that’s a good project for Monday Making.  This block is actually 2 blocks and involves 2 pine trees, either applique or pieced.  I’m working on the pieced option and will show those when completed.

That is all.
