And More T-shirts…

It’s been a while but the t-shirt quilt is finally done! Here’s the front:


And here’s the back:


I’m disappointed because the red-ish flannel in the sashing on the front ran a bit when I washed the finished quilt (drat!). I almost never pre-wash fabrics and I’ve never really had a problem with that before, although, I’ve read that it can happen. I’m hoping that with continued washing the excess colour will disappear.

On the other hand, it turns out it was a really good thing that I didn’t get this quilt finished before our trip out west a couple of weeks ago because that blue and white polka dot on the back was waiting for me at Joann’s :). It’s a cuddle fabric and very cozy and soft – I’m sure my daughter will love it on the back of her t-shirts!

And since it’s Friday and a I have a finish, I’m linking up to finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts!

    A color catcher (available at JoAnns) may help with the problem of the running red. Just re-wash with the color catcher in the wash.

      Thanks for the suggestion, Nancy! As it happens, we will be travelling to the US again in a week so I will look for this product when we’re there. It’s disappointing to put so much time and effort into something and then have the dye run!
