|First, I sorted the tee shirts into color piles|
|After ironing on the stabilizer, I cut the shirts to 8 1/2 inch squares|
|I kept the interesting little bits for later...|
|I'm going to pick these labels off and use them on my own quilts. I love them!|
|After adding the gray 'shadow' fabric, I started the background parts. I love how it is turning out!!|
|The little blocks have the cutest sayings.|
|This is my favorite because I am a half full kind of gal.|

I also did the quilting on a modern Seminole quilt today. I chose a chevron pattern to coordinate with the Seminole piecing. The customer hand dyed the border fabric and chose her other fabrics to go with it. I think it is an innovative use of modern fabrics for a traditional technique.
Unfortunately, Mr Wazoo took in this quilt while I was at guild. He didn't write down the instructions very well and I went ahead and quilted and trimmed it. When the customer came to pick it up, she asked why I hadn't added the five inch borders all around. I had no clue she wanted me to do this, so I just looked stupid, and apologized profusely for the error. Mr W said he didn't remember the instructions. I gave her the quilt without charge. How embarrassing!! I couldn't think of how to remedy the situation besides giving her the quilting free. She was disappointed, but gracious, and said she would still use us for quilting. I don't have to be mad at Mr W, he is doing a swell job beating up on himself without my help. Oh well, sh*t happens, and we move on.
