Here is the couple I made the T Shirt wedding quilt/guest book for. They seemed happy with the quilt, and enjoyed pointing to the various shirts and talking about them.
Neither my submission nor that of my friend Clare will be touring with the Threads of Resistance show, but I’m glad I made the quilt anyway. There were so many interesting entries (550 in all!) that I’m just glad to have submitted something.
You can see the whole range of submissions here, and the ones that were selected for the show here. I was particularly happy to see several tributes to Senator Elizabeth Warren.
You can see Clare’s submission here, and my favorite submission here. Hint on my favorite: It’s titled “Trumpty Dumpty” 😀 If you want to see mine again, I blogged about it here.
And finally, an update on my project with Jane Sassaman fabrics. I decided on this layout, which sort of swirls the blocks in a spiral.The quilt is to be a queen size for my bed, so it needs to be bigger. However, I never found a companion fabric that suited me for the borders, so finally I ordered another 4 yards of the original fabric! More later…
The t-shirt wedding quilt is wonderful. What a great idea.
Thanks! It was fun!
The trumpty dumpty is hysterical!

Yep. Liked it a lot, but it wasn’t chosen either.
The Jane Sassman quilt is coming along well! I can see why there was no companion but more of same possible! Loved Trumpty Dumpty too!
Yes, I have no idea why Trumpty Dumpty didn’t travel!
Bummer about you and Clare’s Threads submissions, I thought they were fantastic and should have been in the show! The T shirt quilt is amazing, as is your current project – I love how fabric can be transformed with that technique! 🙂
Thanks! As for the show, I’m just glad I entered.
I love both these projects. Beautiful.
Thanks! So many quilts, so little time…
