With the weekend over in a flash I can happily say that the front and back of the recycled shirts' quilt has been completed.
The inside patchwork was done but in the end it was just too small to fit a grown man under so with very little blue fabric left I decided to make a white border as that was what I had lots of and in a moment if silliness I put the left over pockets randomly around. Of course my son rearranged them for me - I think he has decided to take this project on as his own.
Then came the sewing of strips for the back. I was allowed to do anything on this side. I didn't bother with any planning, positioning, etc. I just kept on adding pieces. My only frustration has been my sewing machine. The bobbin keeps getting jammed and I had to stop / start all through the process. Painful - but finished now. So what am I going to be doing during my school holidays? Baste 3 quilts! The worst part of the process. At least it means that soon I will be able to do the binding - the best part of the process.
