I spent a few hours earlier in the month working on the Missing Man TShirt quilt. I had already put in time to cut and stabilize the TShirt panels, but this time I trimmed the TShirt panels down to their final size, and I even sewed a few together (which went better than I had feared). Once I had some solid dimensions on how the different missing man formations were going to come together, I worked on getting them to form a cohesive quilt top.
It is going to be a pretty large quilt when it is all said and done; somewhere around 92 inches square. Once I had a rough idea about how it was going to come together, it was time to get my customer to approve the layout and to pick the background fabric – all the blue sky. In the end, I think the customer and I agreed that the right choice was Kona Stratosphere.
The 9 yard order came in this week, so now that I have a backlog of 3 large quilts to quilt (the Rockabilly Baby Quilt, Beacon Quilt, and Midnight Mystery Quilt), I should have plenty of work to choose from for the next month or so.
Linking up with Sunday Stash.
