It is finally done!! I finally completed this Queen size Star Wars T-Shirt quilt!
Wahoo! Seriously I cannot tell you how happy I am that this is finished. Like everything else it was put on hold when the mask making frenzy hit our house but now it is quilted and done! This quilt was a few years in the making. A couple of the shirts I bought new for it. Hello Mandalorian shirt! Some were ours - Abbey Road Droids, Darth Maul and Boba Fett. But, the rest of these were all second hand - yard sales and thrift shops.
It took a few years to find all of these but so worth it! 49 shirts in all are in this quilt. AND I have more that didn’t make it in because they were more kid-like. But, these are going to go into a kids Star Wars T-shirt quilt - don’t worry!
Can you find that little shirt label in the last photo? Bottom left. I found a small hole in that spot, while quilting!! I wanted to scream LOL! But I usually keep the shirt labels if they look cool so I grabbed one and appliquéd and quilted it down after sealing the hole. I figure it’s a feature of the quilt now right?
This is all quilted in 40 weight Glide Thread in Titanium, top and bobbin, using a wide back mottled black flannel and 80/20 batting. I also used my new spoon foot to quilt this and wow what a difference getting over the seams! So much easier - if you make T-shirt quilts you should grab one of these for sure.
One other person in this house loves this quilt too! Don’t judge I could resist!! So do you like my Star Wars quilt?
