Design Wall Monday - January 9, 2012
What you can't see is the actual t-shirt quilt because it is in another room on the basting table and the light is very poor for photos. I am about 3/4 the way through tying it. I know how hard the recipient is on quilts and decided that tying it with wool yarn was the way to go. Why wool yarn? Because when it is washed, the ties will felt and then will be permanent.I had to stop tying it for the day, though, because those screened designs on the shirts are really tough to get a needle through and my fingers are really, really sore.
From this location, if you were to glance to your right, you would see the envelopes of applique pieces and the background for the first block of the Baltimore Christmas.
