Shortly after the Crown Royal Quilt, I decided to make Mr. Relish a t-shirt quilt but once again, I didn't bother with all the rules and just did my own thing. I quickly learned why there are such rules. I did pretty good at cutting up the t-shirts into nice squared pieces, but I didn't use interfacing. I thought it was a waste of time and money. Boy, was I nieve. haha! I even used poly batting. Gasp! I know. Well, I debated for many months on sharing this skeleton in my closet. Hope you still love me.
And this quilt is also terrible because it's made of gawd awful t-shirts from my alma mater's rival. The only fun part of this quilt was cutting up those shirts! But the look on his face when he opened this Christmas gift was priceless!
Another thing about poor Mr. Relish, he's the only male in the house (of course not counting my 12 lb yorkie mix who is quite a pansy). Even the birds are girls! Poor guy needs some masculinity brought into this house. And what screams masculine like this guy?
A quilt made with his fabric! Oh, and you must head over to Molli Sparkles' blog to see all his hot David Butler memes. I need Molli to make me one...(hint hint Molli if you are reading this)! UPDATE- Molli pulled through and made me this oh so dreamy meme...
Thanks, Molli, for making me some of my own personal naughty eye candy!
I am going to do a plus quilt using this free pattern. Yippie! Now y'all, this is on the down low and Mr. Relish usually doesn't read my blog unless I instruct him to so I won't post again about it for a bit.
Which leads me to my impromptu link party...
I want to see everyone else's first. I am still a small little blog with some of the most fabulous readers and extremely grateful for each and every one of you. I would love for you and some new friends to play along and spread the word! This is my first and maybe only link party. I didn't even plan this link party until mid-way through writing this post when I knew it was time to tell you about my first. Then I figured it should be a show and tell for all my quilt friends. Look, I even made a button for y'all! I'm not sure what I am doing so if it doesn't work, let me know (not that I will know how to fix it but I sure will try).
I will keep this open for a week or two and then will have a giveaway of some sort for everyone that links up.
