Back before Caleb and Kelli were married, I made a quilt for Caleb for his birthday. Kelli asked me if I had ever made a T-shirt quilt. I did not know what was involved in making one, since I had never tried. Kelli had been saving old T-shirts for many years and hoped to preserve them somehow. A year or two later, I found a class on the Craftsy website for making T-shirt quilts, so I purchased and downloaded the class. The next time Kelli was here, I told her to bring her collection of T-shirts and I would try to put them together for her. Her collection turned out to be a huge container full of shirts
representing many facets and times of her life.
|To make each row, choose the layout then cut the borders to suit the size of the block. This is challenging, everything needs to be cut to a specific size for the math to match. There was a size chart included in the download.|

|There were so many T-shirts, I ended up making two quilts. They are challenging but really fun to make. Kelli received these quilts for Christmas. She was thrilled, which made me very happy.|
|When we got back from our fall travels, I felt like I needed to try painting again. To warm up, I found a demo in the watercolor magazine for showing distance. My rendition is above. It is not great, but it got me ready to try something else.|
