Adventures in T-Shirt Quilting- Part 1

Hi friends! After a few years of quilting, I *finally* got around to making a t-shirt quilt for a friend. I've always been terrified of making one because I was worried about ruining the t-shirts I was trying to preserve, however, when a friend as me to make one out of all white t-shirts I knew it was a great opportunity to try with limited risk before moving on to t-shirts with designs! I looked at a few t-shirt quilt guides on Pinterest, but honestly didn't see a whole heck of a lot that was super informative or thorough so...

Swap Recap: Totally 80's Swap

Another swap is finished with Bee Creative Swaps and it was so much fun! Being one of the hosts of the swap, I ended up filling in as a Swap Angel for 2 people.  I know it's weird that they weren't matched with each other after their partners dropped, but the timeline was complicated. Anyways! For my first partner I made a cassette inspired swap item using a portion of this quilt pattern from Lysa Flower. My partner loved a lot of 80's music so it seemed like a good jumping off point. I've never done a piecing pattern quite this complicated before...

Stuff I've Made: Bookshelf Quilt

This was the final quilt I made for the 2017 holiday season! There was another half square triangle quilt I'm skipping over, but I didn't get great photos of it before sending it off. Next time I'm at my parent's house, I'll try and grab a few shots. I didn't share what I have over on Instagram so go check out @themorosebee to see it. Anyways! The bookshelf quilt. I'd been planning to make this quilt since last spring, but I saved it for the last one. I made it all over the course of a week and, it was such...

Stuff I've Made: Pokeball Quilt

I've been sharing photos of all the Christmas quilts I made on Instagram, but I still enjoy the process of sharing more in depth on ye olde blogge. Looking back, it seems so crazy that I made so many this year! This one was the second quilt (out of 5) that I made as gifts for people lately. This time around it was an 8-Bit Pokeball Quilt for my nephew. I knew I wanted to make a Pokemon something-or-other and when I found the 8-bit pokeball image I knew it was good place to start. ​Making this quilt went SO...

Stuff I've Made: Americana Quilt

About a year ago, I was graciously given an entire car full of a friend's grandmother's quilting supplies. Her name was Charlotte and she passed away leaving a loving family with some beautiful quilts and SO. MUCH. FABRIC. A few family members took a few things like the nicer machines and I was given everything that was left. It filled my car from floor to ceiling everywhere except the drivers seat. It took several weeks to go through everything. There were patterns and partially finished blocks and lots of scraps and quilting catalogues from the 90s and so much other...
