I received this fun quilt last weekend. I just had Thursday – Monday to get it done and I was gone both Friday & Monday. Very funny but totally doable knowing it was coming ahead of time. It also helped the owner asked for a medium meander that goes a bit faster than custom work.
J said her son works for Microsoft and over time sent her shirts to make a quilt for him. AND… get this… I knew the attic windows setting and thought that was a clever way to use shirts in a quilt. But… windows… get it? For the Microsoft guy. 🙂 Quite clever!!
I used a smaller than “medium” meander to keep the embroidery and shirts from puffing. Sometimes I quilted through a lot of layers and was thrilled the machine just worked like a knife to melted butter. 🙂 Think about it: pocket, seam allowance for pocket, shirt, interfacing behind shirt, batting, fusible for backing appliqué, backing appliqué, backing. Whew!
Yes, there is an applique on the backing! The quilt is about 58″ x 58″ so this is a huge Windows emblem for the back!
I hope you & your son love the quilt, J! Thank you and thanks to Shelly for being the courier. 🙂
