The Giant T-Shirt Quilt - The End


So here it is..... finally in all it's quilted glory!

Such a lovely backdrop (ahem) I realise, but this quilt is sooooo big that there's nowhere else to hang it for a photo.

Each piece was originally 15.5 inches square, which means that this quilt in now approximately 75 inches wide x 90 inches long or 190 cm wide x 228 cm long.


It's really difficult to see, but Bec straight line quilted in white thread either side of each seam line, and then quilted the diagonal lines in invisible thread (so that the stitching wouldn't interfere with the prints).


It's finally time to let go and send it off to live with its owner. It certainly was a learning journey!

Good grief! What a job! It looks wonderful. The new owner'll be stoked.

How did Bec fit the bulk of it under the sewing arm of the machine when she was quilting the far sides of the quilt?
