This past week I finished DH's "Vintage Tin" quilt! It was a year's worth of work on the embroidery in secret and then making the pieced blocks and the border in secret as well. It was kind of fun surprising him for his special birthday. This picture doesn't show up the embroidered blocks very well, but they are in another post here in case you haven't seen them before. It measures 68" x 62".
I usually have a pile of string blocks that I work on from time to time and I got this string block donation quilt finished this week as well. I do love these type of quilts. This one measures approximately 67" x 52".
Here's the backing for the donation quilt. I got this strange looking fabric at the LQS for $4.00/yard! I had originally planned to use it on a queen size quilt, but changed my mind and used something different. I think I have enough of this for another donation quilt.
Guess what! I have another new project! This is a T-shirt quilt that has been commissioned by the SIL of a friend. The T-shirts are here, and I bought a lot of wonder under for them. These fabrics will be borders for the T-shirts. School colors are navy blue and gold. I plan to get started on it this week.
Are you starting any new projects this week? Thanks for visiting!
