    You are a force to be reckoned with. I so appreciate the hint about the interfacing for the t-shirt quilt and I love that using the spray bottle of water instead of going back and forth to the sink works. Why don’t I think of things like that? Thank you for your inspiration. I hope you get some sunshine soon. It might be easier to cope with all that is going on with a bit of blue skies. Spied an open daffodil in one of my pots this morning. Yay!!

    Great way to tackle a hexagon project – can’t wait to see your finish!

  3. Strange, I came across a lovely half-hexagon quilt in the current issue of AP&Q that I love and that is flicking its tail and whiskers at me in a squirrelly way… I keep seeing embroidery around QBL and feel the urge to get mine out again…and thanks for the OMG reminder; better check that I did in fact link mine up because I did finish!

    Hello Roseanne, While reading about the T-Shirt Quilt you are making for your Great-Niece, it made me think of how hard this is for Seniors that have waited so many years for that incredible special Prom Night and then the day they officially get to start their “own” adult lives. Both of your next projects, I am going to be looking at. I find the fabric selection you chose for the Hexagon quilt to be lovely! Then, I have no doubt that Sue will do a beautiful job hand embroidering that beautiful flower block! Of course, I still smile at the adorable placemats you made! I hope that you and Sue continue to have fun while quilting. Have a great day!

  5. Good luck with all of your projects – your hexie quilt is really coming along nicely 🙂

  6. I am in love with your hexies! You are making good progress on your projects.

    I didn’t know the hexagon quilt was a craze. For once I’m ahead of the game then. lol I started making a hexagon quilt with full hexagons in 2016. I thought I could do it on the machine but even with a pattern, I didn’t like the way the Y seams looked, so I cut all the hexies in half and made rows. It was soooo much easier. I’m glad to see it’s a craze now. I’ll have to dig mine out and finish it!

  9. How awesome of you to turn those cherished tee-shirts into a one-of-a-kind memory quilt. I know she will cherish it for the rest of her life. I’m sure your readers are very appreciative of the helpful tips you are sharing while making the quilt. You are saving them so many headaches. Stay safe! Thanks for sharing your projects. 🙂

  10. I gotta say, those placemats are the cutest thing I’ve seen in awhile. Great tips on the t-shirt quilts; I’m avoiding the one I need to make for my daughter. Mainly because she’s not settled in one spot yet, so we decided to wait until then, so we can add in any shirts she’s using now. So I might make notes of your tips and stick them in my bin so I don’t forget.

    I’m still crushing on the placemats. Also excited to see the t-shirt and hexi quilts.

  12. I was happy to read your tips on making T shirt quilts — I just received a box from my daughter’s friend to make her a quilt. I did order the June Tailor interfacing after reading one of your earlier posts. I do have a question — should I wash the shirts? Evidently she’s a smoker and I’m overwhelmed with the smell! Cute start on your half hexie quilt!

  13. That’s a great tip about the interfacing for the t-shirt pieces, Roseanne – I’d never thought to do it that way before! I love the fabric and colors for the hexie baby quilt, too. Are you using a special ruler to cut the half hexies? Hope you, Sue, and all the family are hanging in there!

  14. I haven’t gotten around to a t-shirt quilt yet–one of these days! I enjoyed reading another letter on Melva’s blog, though I’m not a follower–what is the story behind all these letters? (Busy day ahead here but I hope to dig deeper later.). The hexagons will be fun to watch go together. We finally got a few sunny days but back to rain here.

  15. karenfae says:

    that is a great way to do a hexie quilt if you don’t want Y seams or EPP!!

  16. I really appreciate your tips about making t-shirt quilts because I truly hope to make one some day. I love how your hexie quilt is coming together. I also plan to make one or two of those “some day”. One of these days I’ll have to make a master list like you and Sue have. For now I have a bunch of projects floating nebulously around in my head! Have a good day, Mary.

    You’ve got a good start on the to do list for this week. Love the embroidery motif, that should be really pretty in the colors you’ve chosen. Have a great week, hopefully you’ll get a bit of sun soon. It’s been rainy here more days than not, but the sunny days have been really nice. Wishing you some of that weather.
