A fun day to sew!

Our Quilt guild offered a One Day Mystery sew in - and it was a blast!!
It was hosted by my friend Sheree - and she told us how much of the fabric to bring, and the first cutting step - and then!! We showed up to sew!!

It was quite a blast!!

These were my three colors - and this was the block!!


I really loved how the grey ( gray) just made the red and blue pop



and Ta-da!!
My finished quilt top!!


Mine finished at 52 x 64 
so I think I will add a border to bring it up to QOV sizes 
and Bam!
another QOV

It was such a great day!! 

and because is it Friday
and I am in brag mode
My T shirt quilt

She was so excited to see all her memories in one place!!

Days don't get much better than that!!

I will always have a weakness for red and blue quilts. It's a classic color combination and looks great here. Well done!

The last T shirt quilt I did only had 16 shirts so I bordered in gray on one side 3" and on the bottom 4" dark blue. That made it bigger and it came AWESOME (not to brag....but it was!!) My friend was really happy!

Very fun razzle-dazzle pinwheel quilt - and Hooray for the Tshirt finish!!

Kate said...

You work fast, all those blocks in one day? Very cool T-shirt quilt. It's always such a good feeling when someone loves what you make. Hope this week is as nice.
