I finished my quilt last week, it only took a couple of evenings to cut up all my squares and a couple more to sew them all together. I decided to use iron-on batting to hold the tshirts firm (to stop them stretching too much) especially when sewing them to the denim. I am really happy with the result. I won't be entering it into any quilting shows, but it has awesome memories and will be toasty in winter! (photos = back denim, front tees)
Do you like the pockets I left on? I think they look so cool!!

I keep thinking of new things I want to sew that my list is getting ridiculously long and my house is getting seriously neglected.
I decided to start a little teeny tiny business to sell a few of the extra things I'm making and to earn a little bit of money to makes ends meet (and so I can afford to buy a few bits of fabric here and there). Check out Zealous Design on facebook!
It's meant to be summer here in New Zealand, but I'm feeling seriously ripped off this year... it just won't stop raining... grrr... oh well I guess that means more sewing time :-)
