Finished t-shirt quilt top! Now working on UFOs!

Wow, I finished the T-shirt quilt top I was working on earlier this month!  It turned out beautifully!  I had to self-design each block, since each shirt was a different color.  You can see a picture of it  before borders were put on, on my Facebook page.  The batik fabrics are gorgeous!  Now I hope to quilt a flannel baby quilt for a church donation.  It is a fun pink and chocolate brown theme.

I am joining in my first swap in several years and I am very excited.  We are doing a year of mug rugs!  I am already thinking about what I might do for my March assignment-some clever take on St. Patrick's Day.

I tried a new recipe last night, one that I found on Pinterest.  It was a recipe for Spinach Cups.  I varied the recipe to include baby portabella mushrooms and scallions for a bit of extra flavor punch.  They were absolutely delicious! 

Have a great week and sew up a blue streak!

Working on a T-shirt quilt on a 3-day weekend!

I am working to finish the top of a T-shirt quilt.  It has been challenging since each shirt is a different size.  I am working on the math to make all of the sashing strips fit into rows.  The sashing is batik fabric and it is beautiful!  I will post pictures shortly.  On another note, my young nieces LOVED their quilted journal covers that I made them for Christmas.  As soon as I get the camera working again, I will share pictures of those too.  Yes, my cheapo camera gave out...right before Christmas!  So, hopefully I can replace it soon.  Have a great weekend and happy quilting.  Oh, and I am going to the LQS for the pajama sale tomorrow.  Early birds get 30% off!
