Most libraries, that I know of anyway, carry them, so there's no excuse and you will be happy you checked them out - or bought them. Both Sue and I agreed that the evening was great fun! Marie is definitely one of my favorite authors!
Here is my design wall with the beginnings of a T-shirt quilt. It's not in any order now and I need to decide the order before I cut around each block to make it look like the second one (the one in my last post).
I found a tutorial on YouTube on how to make a block tip. So, I made a template (below) which I can place on the block after I sew on the 3" borders.
In this picture, you can see where I lined up the black lines on the edge of the T-shirt part and then I will cut along the edges of the template which measures 14 1/2". Most of the blocks are orange and black, but there are the random blocks in blue, pink and red, white & blue I Love NY. I will sew all the 3" borders on, then figure out the order I will use before I use the template. I want every other block to tip opposite to the ones next to it.
Wish me luck!
