a king for the queen of hearts

I finished up the king size t-shirt quilt this week. However I also started having a LOT of problems with my computer and wasn't sure if and when I would be able to post. It has been fixed for now (thanks to my husband) but will need an upgrade at some point if I want to see my pictures and files that we shifted to a different computer again. I had to think some about how to do the pics for this post but finally got these:

This is her second t-shirt quilt--she had a LOT of them. Now they are gonna help keep her warm this winter.

With the first one, I made columns of the t-shirts and then sewed those together. This one was built in rows instead, alternating dark and light ones. I found some wide quilting fabric for the backing at JoAnn, and even used it for the binding by following this tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew.

Over the summer I heard an artist talking about her work, and how she had felt constrained by her  workspace. Someone told her "work smaller." Having made a king size quilt now, and feeling increasingly constrained by my workspace, my motto is now "work smaller"---except for maybe very special occasions for very special people.

And now I'm off to enjoy fall break with my family.
