I do a little bit of quilting...I'm still very much a beginner at it, though!

I've been quilting a few years -- I've made kid's quilts and some traditional quilts for the holidays.

I thought you might enjoy this tee-shirt quilt I finished last month for my niece. It is made of some of her favorite tee shirts and we "filled in" some of her beloved characters with character fabric:

I know this thread is a few months old and didn't have much activity to begin with but I quilt too! I'm dying to make a good Disney quilt. Love the Disney t-shirt quilt. I need to do that with my son's Disney t-shirts as he outgrows them.

I pretty much gave up on any responses. Seems there was no interest.

Your quilt is beautiful. I've done a number of t-shirt quilts, which were custom for people, but I've put sashing and set squares between each shirt.

Boo Well, I'm very interested!! I've been dying for a DIS Quilt group. I'm really getting back into it now that my DS is older and can do more for himself. I still don't quilt a ton until he's in bed for the night but I do try to do at least a little every day. Do you hand or machine quilt? I hand quilt but would love to have one of my quilts done on a long arm.

Quite the novice here. I can do 9 patch. But, there are days, it's still not square.
I just bought some fat quarters this weekend. Realized my poor sewing machine hasn't been used for over a year! And I've been giving so much to everyone else--depression coming back so I decided it was MY time again.

Meanwhile, my mom is an AWESOME quilter and other sewing projects. She made a puzzle quilt for my bed. She made my DS2 layette, bibs...all that good stuff. So I have support if I ask for it.

I use my machine for my piecing, but plan to do a all hand quilt one day.

Hey, you gotta start somewhere My stuff wasn't square at first either. It still isn't all the time But no quilt should be perfect. You should definitely make things for you. My Mom gives away so much of her work too. My Mom is the one that has taught me to quilt but I've never put on a binding on my own so that's one thing I plan on learning this year. I've sewn it down by hand but never sewn it on the front by machine and I haven't put any binding together either. That's great that you have a good teacher I machine piece too. No way would I ever get anything done if I did everything by hand.

I've been quilting since about 1993. I both hand quilt and have used a long arm to machine quilt. For the larger quilts I've been making, I send them to a long arm quilter out of State because she is so much more reasonable than anyone here on LI. I love to hand quilt, but as my RA progresses, I'm finding it harder and harder to hand quilt. The smaller things I quilt on my own machine.

I LOVE quilting!

I'm more than happy to share any knowledge I have with anyone. We were all a beginner at one point, so just ask.



PS I'm glad to see that this is becoming an active thread.

That's awesome that you've been quilting for so long. I've been quilting since 2005. My Mom got breast cancer and once she was in full remission I told her I wanted her to teach me because I really wanted something I could hold on to that I could say that she taught me and so we could share such a great similar interest. I was only 24 at the time so she was quite surprised that I asked and even more surprised that I've stuck with it off and on all these years. I'm one of those quilters that starts a project and then gets bored LOL so I have many things that are half done and at least 5 quilt tops that need to be basted and quilted. My plan for this year is to get things done before I start on something else but we all know how that will wind up.

I'm glad this is becoming an active thread too. the DIS needs a quilt group

Oh and that stinks about your RA I have carpal tunnel and it's getting progressively worse throughout the years. I can only hand quilt for about an hour before it starts to really bother me. I guess I really should wear wrist braces while I quilt but it's so inhibiting. I have never machine quilted anything except a purse I made years ago (that's still not totally done).

Thanks. The real crisis will be when I can't even piece. Then we'll have a problem!


You might want to look into having the carpal tunnel surgery. I had it done on my right hand and have never had a problem with that since. The success rate is excellent so long as you don't wait until there is too much damage done to the nerves.

Would love to see some of your tops!

Ugh yeah definitely. Hopefully you have a while before that happens.

Yeah I've thought about it. I just fear if I go to the doc they'll want me to get cortisone shots and I've heard how painful that is lol. Did you have to have shots before the surgery?

I'd be happy to take and post some pictures. I'd love to see yours as well!!

I had the cortisone shot ONCE.....never again!! First of all, I can't even begin to tell you how much they hurt and secondly, it did not help one iota!!! I'd go straight for the surgery and was going to do that for my left hand, but when I had the CMC (carpal meta carpal a/k/a thumb joint rebuilt), it alleviated all the carpal tunnel pain I had in the left hand, so I've never had to do it.
