Back to the t-shirt quilt and still straightening up

I wasted part of my evening watching a really bad movie "Pompeii". While the movie was on I did a couple of loads of laundry.

I worked on cleaning up the area by my second sewing machine. Remember what it looked like?

And now it looks like this. I am thinking about what area I am going to attack next. The studio is pretty much straightened up, but the laundry/utility/dye studio needs a bit of attention as well as the fabric storage room and the guest room so there is plenty to choose from. It is amazing how it can all get away from me. It is not a disaster, but just needs a bit of straightening up.

I did managed to finish quilting the Kiss t-shirt and got part of the U2 block quilted. I cannot get these pictures to show right side up - sorry.

Mostly I am meander stitching the backgrounds and outlining the lettering, but for the Hendrix block that wasn't going to work. I ended up loosely tracing the flowing colors in the background and did detailed tracing in the hair and around the face.
