He also has his projects and is now painting some of our furniture with chalk paint. He is making the furniture look brand new and I love every piece. So, we are always complementing each other's projects.
The following are pictures of the quilt. I used lime green fabric for the backing that I bought at www.warehousefabricsinc.com for under $3.00 a yard. I love their fabrics. I am a good customer.
The t-shirts used were some high school, but mostly college t-shirts. There were also several Hard Rock Café shirts that Leslie collected on her travels. I had to back the shirts with iron on interfacing and I'm not sure that worked that great. After adhering the interfacing I remembered that I hadn't prewashed the brighter and darker shirts, so I washed those squares several times so they wouldn't fade when the quilt was washed. I noticed that the interfacing did not adhere to these after being washed. Hopefully since the interfacing was sewn to the edges of each square, it will be okay. Well, here is the quilt. Notice how Katie the cat has to check out the quilt.
