Finished T-Shirt Quilt

I finally finished my son’s t-shirt quilt last night (remember I am slow at hand sewing). He loves it and can’t wait to use it on his dorm bed.

Today I had an easy job, I monogrammed towels for him to take to college. He wasn’t excited about me embroidering his towels but I am only putting one small letter (last name initial) on each one so if someone has the same towels, he can quickly recognize his. He will be sharing a bathroom with 3 other young men and I know things will get mixed up!

I used a satin fill stitch and a basic font in Monogram Wizard Plus called Gregory. I wanted to use a monochromatic thread but the closest I had was lighter than the towels. Not wanting to make a trip to my LQS I decided to use it. I think they look classy and not feminine which is what he was worried about.

Now I can get back to work on my 3 fabric Bargello quilt. We leave in a few days to take our son to school so I probably won’t have time to get a lot done on it but will look forward to finishing it when we get back from Wake Forest. When that is done, it will be time to start my favorite sewing of the year, Christmas gifts!
