It's amazing how quickly I can put a project together when I'm in the right mood!
My college/sorority/grad school/etc tshirt quilt is almost done! I just have to put on the binding, and then I'm finished!
Quick tip: To save time on cutting/sewing a backing together, I went to Bed, Bath, & Beyond and found a set of red Twin XL Pure Beech® Jersey Knit Sheets on sale for 19.99, and then used my $5 off purchase of $15 or more coupon (so if you do that math, I got the sheet sheet set for $14.99 plus tax!). And it was already the perfect size for my quilt! I just had to trim it up a bare minimum after basting the layers together.
I've never bought jersey from JoAnne/Hobby Lobby before, but I'm going to guesstimate that it is about 4.99/yard(?!?). And I would probably have had to buy 4 yards, because I'm assuming the width wouldn't be long enough on it's own. Then I would have had to sewn 2 yards to 2 yards to make a bigger block. So, that would have been 19.96, but if I had a 40% off coupon, it would have ended up around $12. But, here is why my sheets set is STILL a better deal... I still have a whole fitted sheet and pillow case left over!! Not to mention I saved time!
I can think of a million things to do with all of that extra (and did I mention how super soft it is?) bright red fabric. In fact, I have a certain maxi dress tutorial pinned right now, that I think would look great in red.
