I think I just may have won the war!!!!
In case you didn't stop by last week, I have been on a mission to finish one 8th grade Auction T-shirt Quilt by today.
It has gone from Beast to Mammoth!
I started out with a plan to do red in the middle and work my way out to blue, a bit of a rainbow effect.
But the pink threw me off.
So I tried to go random...I didn't even take a picture because it was so awful...the red and blue were such a large amount, that there was not a good way to embrace the random.
I let it sit for a day and did some odds and ends chores in my laundry room.
I fiddled on EQ7.
I then decided that there was enough red and blue t-shirts to make a "border". Then an inside row of whites and grays. I then concentrated the very small, but very bold orange, pink, and yellow t-shirts in the center.
At that point I had to concede the battle to the shirts...not to mention Enemy number one: BUTTON!
Hands behind his back and one sock off...never a good sign.
He loved to pull the shirts off the design board and try to throw them in the wash. He is a tricky one, that young one!
I have made progress and have almost completely pieced each row, and the rows together.
Today's plan is to finish the piecing...
...it is a breeze with the Tricot stabilizer!
And I plan to have Mammoth on Ole Betsy by late morning/early afternoon.
The binding and backing await....
All other projects...COMPLETELY on hold in the meantime!
The auction is Saturday!!
Linking up with Lee!
