As Long As The Seam Ripper Was Out...

As I was ripping the hand quilting out of my dear jane quilt I remembered another quilt that I had started hand quilting years ago that was tucked away in a tote in the attic.  I started this quilt made of thrift store shirts long before Bonnie Hunter made it cool to turn old clothes into quilts again.  It was also started when I was a novice quilter...the heavy backing and too thick batting were not ideal for hand quilting, so it's no surprise that I never wanted to finish it.  A few more ripped stitches, a different batting, along with my trusty Juki machine and I should have this quilt finished in no time at all!

It's always interesting when we go back and revisit those first quilts. You will be much happier with it now.
