  1. Dang, girl! You have been so busy. The tree skirt looks fantastic. I’ve only made bias binding once but I remember how cool the technique was. Good for you figuring that out! I love your bonus project table runner, too. Very cute!

    I have repaired a similar project to your son’s T-shirt quilt. It was much smaller though, so I’m not sure if what I did would work for you. I ended up putting super lightweight stabilizer on the back of the entire quilt top. I did that before patching it because the fabric was just so thin. I think if you’re just worried about it moving around on you and stretching while you’re quilting it you can smooth it with your hands and be super duper careful. I’d also use a jersey needle if you have one. It’s just easier on the t-shirts and keeps from tearing them. What an awesome mom to take on that project! I get that though, I would have done the same thing.

    Your tiny Christmas tree is great! I love that we’ve basically made a forest between all of us.

    Hope you have a very happy Christmas and I hope all is well with your family. Lots of love to you and yours!


  2. Wow! Superwoman! You have been busy. The tree skirt turned out fantastic. Mark that UFQ complete along with the pretty table runner.
    The Tshirt quilt will quilt up great on your longarm with batting. I love using bias binding. It is easy to make. I have also been making the first 45° cut and then using my Accuquilt 2.5″ strip die to cut strips. Then I run the ends through the 8″ Qube die #5 (2.5″ half square triangle die) which trims the bunny ears off and makes lining up pieces easy.
    The tiny Christmas tree is perfect for the holidays.
    Enjoy time with your family.


  3. The tree looks great! No surprise you’re keeping it 😀 The star wars towels are cute.. Oh the tree skirt turned out really nice too… it’s great. The table runner is lovey. It might have been a few weeks, but you’ve been busy!

    The dog really went to town on that quilt, eh? I’m seeing a lot of patches! I’ve never done a tshirt quilt before, so no advice… but I hope you figure something out!

    Merry Christmas!


  4. I have yet to finish my first t-shirt quilt, but I have added patches to things. I think if this time around you are adding batting and a backing and a binding, you will probably give it a much longer life. Like Jennifer I recommend the ball point/jersey needle.

    I love your tree! It’s xmas day and I’m finishing up my second tree today. Then I need to ake room to store the two trees, or give one away, lol.

    I have only made true bias binding once, and that was for my tree skirt a year or two ago. I was using leftover bits of fabric, so I had to piece it more than I would have liked, but it worked ok. I think you did a great job on that and also way to go finding the unfinished treeskirt!

    Merry Christmas!
