....meetings, meetings and more meetings! Throw in a few hockey practices for DD and that sums up last week! Very little time spent in the sewing room and when I was in the sewing room...oh boy! Frustration hit a new HIGH... :( What was so unsettling, you ask?! :) !!!
The beginning of a T Shirt Quilt. I had this bright idea (ummm...not so bright now ~ lol) that since I was running short on the tshirts that I would sub in a pieced banner for the first horizontal row... that way I only needed 9 shirts instead of 12.
Remind me that I have trouble with the whole concept of paper piecing! My hats off to all who make wonderfully paper pieced works of quilt art! I just struggle with the whole *bigger - than - flip - backwards - then - sew - and - it's - right* thing! Mine are usually wrong!
even when I remember to flip then sew.... All I can say is *Oh Boy!*
and I haven't moved onto the tshirt preps yet ... Oh Boy! I decided to let it stew a bit before I go back to it. Those *2*'s were driving me batty. And I'm still not happy with them. I think I *know* why I kept putting this project off all summer. wink.wink. and I got two tshirt quilts to make. OH BOY!
I paper pieced the letters than I was free piecing the numbers. Under it all is the scroll that I had the players sign last week at the Meet 'n Greet for the Milwaukee Admirals. The letters are a free download found here. You'll need to click around as each letter is it's own page/download. I reduced the letters from 6 inch to 4 inch and tried to send the tracing paper through the printer. yeah, that did not work well either. :) At least I am learning a lot from this project so far! so it's all good!!!
