Pinterest Project #3

Inspired by this t-shirt quilt (above) that I came across recently on Pinterest, I decided to create my own using some t-shirts from high school and bands that I was friends with when I was a teenager. I got the fabric for the backing, the fabric for the binding, and the batting from using a coupon code that they had emailed me. (I love a deal!)

Quilt Tie

Instead of actually quilting it, I decided tie the quilt. I used a curved upholstry needle and some yarn from my stash to tie the quilt. I used Katie's tutorial on how to tie the quilt together. Then I didn't want to go through the hassle of having to handstich the binding to the back of the quilt, so I used this tutorial from Prudent to make and attach the binding just using my sewing machine.

Cat like Quilt

Overall, it was a pretty easy project and now I have a little lap quilt full of memories!
