I have wanted to do this for ages and have FINALLY DONE IT! Hooray!!
We give most of our outgrown and outdated clothes away to friends or charity, but over the years I’ve held on to some t-shirts that were special…..and I have finally joined them together to make this fun quilt.
This was done completely freestyle with no forward planning. It’s one of those "please admire from afar but don't get up close and look" type quilts, because it's been sewn quite badly, and is all a bit higglety pigglety and crooked.
Having said that, I’m pretty pleased with myself. This is a bit of Coleman family history, right here. And the higglety pigglety-ness of it all kind of reminds me of our completely quirky little family. With a non nuero-typical 6 year old, artists for parents and an extremely funky little 2 year old, things get a bit messy and crooked in our family. This quilt represents us perfectly.
Some of my favourite moments (probably not the right word) in this quilt are the Steve Carrel/Anchorman "I love Lamp" square, the Beatle's "Let it be" square, Thomas the Tank and the cute owl, the Taiwanese Salvation Army Square (random, I know), Scooby Doo, and the Dunder Mifflin Company Picnic square (any fans of the US "Office" will get it!)
This quilt is backed with a green Op Shopped woolen blanket, and some fat white bias binding can hide a multitude of mistakes, don't you think??
