I got the rest of the strip sets sewn together last evening and there was enough to border all the t-shirts. They still need sewn together and the t-shirts needs trimmed, but it's one step at a time. This quilt will be bigger than a baby quilt, but I always say bigger is better when it comes to a quilt!

What a busy three days! Let's start off with the finishing of the black and white quilt! After washing, it measures 87 1/2 x 102 1/2. It started out at 104 x 89 1/2. The fabric was white Kona and black Kona. I don't know the maker of the striped fabric. The back is a grunge wide backing. I didn't get a picture of the back - I ran out of time, but I will get one tonight and post it tomorrow.

It was a busy evening, but I managed to get the binding cut, pieced and pressed for the B&W quilt. This 1 1/2" piece is all I have left after cutting the strips for the binding! That is cutting it close! LOL!! I didn't measure before I started cutting - I just went for it!.

Once I got home after work and running a few errands, I buckled down and got to work on the B&W quilt. Guess what? All the quilting is done! I appreciated everyone's comments about the binding and I will be going with the striped fabric. You know what I will be doing tonight after work!

The black triangles on one border got quilted last night. I am so close to being done!

So what did I do in 5 days? Let's start out with quilting. I did the math and I have 92% of the B&W quilt quilted. All I have left to quilt are the black triangles in the outer border. That was a lot of black border to quilt!
