T'Shirt Memory Quilt

This week I have been working on my first ever quilting project.  For a very long time I have been attracted to quilting but didn't know where to start and was quite overwhelmed by the thought of it.  I finally decided to bite the bullet and go for it.  I had been saving loads of Bethany's pretty T'shirts since she was born and I wanted to make them into quilt that she can use now but them pass on to her children.  I was surprised at how quickly it came together.  I enjoyed each step, even the hand stitching on the binding (I'm not a fan of hand stitching because I get a lot of pain in my wrists).  I can definately see how addictive quilting could be and it has given me the confidence to think about a bigger project.
