Had an all around great day. Spent some quality time with my mom, sister and my sister's family in between some real great quilt projects.
Several weeks ago I saw ticker tape projects on several blogs and thought I might like to try it. Then i saw some raw edge applique and thought I might try that, also or instead of, depending on the project. Further thought and I realized neither was something I wanted to do a whole quilts worth and the idea morphed into maybe something on a tee shirt for the summer in maybe red, white and blue.
Last weekend I was sorting through my hangings for the front door and came across the country flag I came up with several years ago for a guild block of the month. The timing was just too good and I knew I wanted it on my tee shirt.
So now I have a fusible, blanket stitched, appliqued flag on a tee shirt for the summer. While I was at it I whipped one up for a friend who I will be seeing in a couple of weeks. I guess that means that the ticker tape and raw edge will need to stew awhile longer for an outlet of their own.
