Senior Band Quilt

This quilt was gifted, so I can share!

This quilt is a great example of why I tell folks not to worry about not having enough t-shirts for a certain size quilt.  I can always add in more blocks.  For example, this person had 8 shirts but wanted a twin-sized quilt for her daughter.  So I simply went in and added quartered blocks alternating with the shirts.  I like the overall look.

I was still waiting for the embroidered patches to get back to me. Hence the hole in the middle.

Also, I had a couple of clients want to know about embroidery.  That is one service I do not offer as of yet.  Sometimes I think about getting a fancy embroidery machine, but then I remember that I am limited on  space and funds and time.  I don’t know if I would even have the time to fully learn it.  I still have a serger that I am too scared to touch.

One thing about this quilt that I especially love is the backing.  It is made from a fabric called “shirting flannel”.  So it’s extra soft.  Basically, it’s pajama pants material.  Can you imagine?!  A quilt with pajama pants material on the back?!  I keep looking for more ways to incorporate this kind of material into my quilts as it’s just so darned comfy!
