Latest T-shirt Quilt

This is the latest t-shirt quilt. This woman wanted all of her sorority t-shirts made up into something she could use. It turned out to be 68" wide x 74" tall. She asked for shabby chic and I think the fabric turned out perfectly for this one!!

My 12 Connected Challenge Piece for "Yes" Theme: "Yes, In Any Language" by Jan Girod

This is not the quilt that I set out to make. How many times has that happened to you? The idea of using the word "Yes" in several languages was part of my thought process for this challenge from the beginning, but not the techniques used or the end result. Once again my daughter had to flat out tell me that I was hung up on the techniques, clearly they were not getting me where I wanted to go and that I needed to forget the plan. Well she was so very right. I actually had to grovel tonight. I thanked her for the "kick in the pants", that I actually love the way this piece turned out and that it is probably better than expected. Actually kissed her cheek in gratitude for her bluntness...which by the way she is very good at.
I am sorry that the colors in the photo's seem so different, I wanted to get these posted and did not wish to take time to set up my photography lighting. The top photo is the accurate photo, but in order for you to see the writing clearly I had to illuminate my design wall with my work lamp.
