T-shirt quilt is DONE!

I think this is the fastest I’ve ever completed a t-shirt quilt (that is, once I got started!). I started deconstructing the shirts on Dec 12 and I put the final stitches in the binding last night! This quilt was commissioned by one of my old running buddies and her birthday is today…I wanted so badly to get this to her by today but alas I missed 😦 I’ll put it in the mail tomorrow and she’ll have it by mid-week.

I went outside this morning to grab a few shots…it was windy and the sun was streaking through the trees :-p

I used the same fabric for backing and binding – her favorite color is blue!

I’ve been thinking about what I want to do for 2020 goals, I’m going to make a list of all my UFO’s so I can keep track of what I finish this year. I have a box just for finished tops and there are some really pretty ones I want to finish, not to mention the ones I basted last week (Meadowland, Granny Cabin & Rainbow Improv). I’ve tried the APQ UFO challenge before but that uses a random number to determine what gets worked on and I’d rather use my gut to decide what I work on.

I’ve also decided I’m going to take on the challenge to #dosomethingquiltyeveryday. This was an IG challenge started by another quilting friend last year and I think it will help me stay on track with my 2020 goal. It can be as little as 15 minutes but it will keep me accountable to doing something every day and post a pic on IG to ‘prove’ it!

I actually went to WW to weigh in yesterday and thankfully I maintained from the last time two weeks ago! Whew! I got there as soon as the doors opened to beat the “January” rush but I didn’t stay for the meeting/workshop. I’ve been doing really good staying within points and not eating ‘junk’ so I’m planning to see a loss next week!

That’s all for now…have a great rest of the weekend πŸ™‚

  1. WOW — Sharon the t-shirt quilt is awesome!

    I’ve been working on my 2020 goals also — no real quilting goals other than doing a QAL — not sure which one. My focus this year is turning scraps into baby gift items for my shop and working on getting fit. I started doing intermittent fasting in November with success–I didn’t renew my WW membership so hopefully I won’t regret that decision πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Karla! Sounds like you have great goals for 2020. Funny you should mention intermittent fasting…I’ve been toying with it for a few weeks. I’ve been giving myself a 10 hour window for eating (10am-8pm) just to see if it would help…of course I haven’t been all that good about not eating after 8pm! LOL I’ll be interested to see how it goes for you πŸ™‚

      1. So far I’m doing really great with the fasting–I’m using the same 10 hour window as you. I have dinner between 3-4 and start my wine drinking after 6. Yesterday was the first time I had something sweet in 30 days — exciting! I do feel more energetic –loosing inches but maintaining the same weight which I’m OK with.
