Progress on the t-shirt quilt

I improved pieced this quilt include the t-shirts. Yes, it takes longer, but I like the softer look of the quilt rather than if I had sashed the t-shirts. I made sewed together groups of shirts. To join the groups of shirts I needed to add some pieced units out of quilting cotton. This quilt is very orange as it has been my niece's favorite color her whole life.

I started quilting this piece by meander quilting the t-shirts and then next I would quilt any of those orange pieced units that were next to the quilted t-shirts. The last couple of evenings I needed to get caught up on quilting those orange pieced sections.

It is very cold here. I was outside shoveling yesterday at my house and at work and the cold almost took your breath away! Here is what came up for the temperature on the Weather Channel this morning.

The sun is shinning right now and I am grateful for that!
