T-Shirt Quilt Denim Quilt

First I would like to say that this quilt is HEAVY!  If there is anyone in need of a therapy quilt for sensory issues, this is the one.  The customer used not only t-shirts, but sweatshirts fused to interfacing.  The batting was cotton, and the backing was flannel.  To add to the weight, all the sashing is denim.  I am glad I didn't piece this one.  I wonder how many needles were broken during the construction.

It is far from perfect.  Most jeans have spandex in them, so that made it a little stretchy.  Nothing like a little stretch in the jeans to go with the stretch in the shirts.  I didn't break any needles.  I did find 2 spots where I had a skipped stitch.  I went back and fixed those, and all was good.

It was a workout just hanging the quilt to get a picture.

The dark line is a shadow from the swingset.

The customer requested a simple stipple.  I kept it large to avoid being a distraction with the pictures.
