Joe, my son-in-law has a March birthday. I love to make t-shirt quilts, and I have asked him many times for t-shirts. Emily says he wears them out and throws them away. I was talking with Joe’s mom, and she happily volunteered to donate some of his old t-shirts that were still at her house. These were very special t-shirts, including a couple of ski vacations and one from summer camp. I was able to use the front and back and sleeves so that I had enough to make a quilt. The shirt from summer camp had some very heavy paint on it – the dinosaurs have thick, cracked paint that hurts when you run your hand across it. I suggested that we try to remove the paint and re-paint that part of the dinos. The response was that it would be considered if I would find the paint!
Here’s a chart to go with the video for cutting eight inch log cabin blocks on the AccuQuilt Go cutter. Call me compulsive, but I have a notebook with lots of cutting charts. After I go through the process of creating a quilt in Electric Quilt and calculating everything for a block or a quilt and get it started; sometimes I get interrupted or distracted with something else for a week or a month or so, (sound familiar?!? ;). So it’s really nice to have something written so I can pick it up again and proceed.
