Made some headway!

Lately seems like I have to many things to do besides quilting. By the time I get things done, it is too late or I'm to tired to pull out a project to work on.  BUT... I did make a little headway tonight.  I can't tell you how many times I would get out t-shirts for my brother-in-law's t-shirt quilt, lay them out, arrange and rearrange only to put them away. WELL, I actually got some sewed together tonight!  I think I have a plan finally!  NOTE TO SELF... make sure to cut all t-shirts the same size!  Don't get creative!  ugh! 

Last night I did a bit of sewing. I got the border on Barbara's Kaffe Fassett quilt but I still need one more print for the outside border and the backing.  Then I was able to put borders around the critter photos for the quilt I am making for Alan.  I am trying to keep that quilt out of his sight until it is finished. Every quilt I work on he always asks, who it that one for!  I can't wait to at least get the top done so I can say This one is for you!

I did add two pieces to my "Kitchen Sewing Studio". I bought a floor lamp, Ott Lite HD Wide Angle.  OH does it ever shed light on things!  I also bought a small desk type chair with wheels and a form fitting mesh back!  WOW, I didn't know what I was missing until now.  I actually don't slouch sitting in this chair.  Which means I can sew longer without getting as tired.

I guess it is time to go for now and get some sleep.  This computer is begining to hypnotize (sp) me!

I was reading somewhere the other day that this lady made a t-shirt quilt by putting fusable web on back of bits of t-shirt she wanted to use, then cutting all different size pieces out then arranging on a wholecloth background till she was happy and then just fusing down and doing raw edge applique. no worrying about cutting the same size etc and the t-shirt fabric was stablised by the fusable.
