Recently, Jennifer decided making Judson t-shirt quilts should be our January project. Yes, fabulous. Great idea. In preparation for Second Saturday Sewing, I cut my shirts and interfaced them. I also decided I would make mine twin sized and finalized a layout. (btw, TWIN is HUGE. This is definitely the biggest quilt I've ever attempted)
I used 21 shirts (I used the fronts and backs of my 3 Parent's Day jerseys). The big blocks are 15inch squares. And the small blocks that are made from the front pockets (and some blank shirt squares to have enough) are 6.5in blocks.

Mandy won the prize for being the only one to finish a project on Saturday:

|It's hard to tell in the picture because my camera was malfunctioning but this scarf is really cool. I like the design AND the fabric. (and the baby bump)|
I'm excited for everyone else to get going on their quilts. Since we were all at The Judson at the same time, give or take a year, we have mostly the same shirts. But we all have different ideas on how we want our quilts to look. It's going to be fun to see 3, 4 or 5, (or 6 more) Judson t-shirt quilts finished.
