Jameela's Quilt

Jameela is a dear friend of main with 3 boys.
 She wished a girl , and because ALLAh is Great , she is pregnant again.
 I promised her to make a quilt . 

Months past and a twins came( I told you  ALLAh is Great).

I prefer to do a lap quilt instead. 

Here is a corner


Here is the back 




All sizes of fabric stripes stitched to a paper foundation (Bonnie Hunter method http://quiltville.blogspot.ae/


Then free motion quilting . 

The final result 

Hope it reflects and brings happiness and relaxing to Mom and the twins.

Building a shirts quilt

I will keep showing my progress in my last project between my hands.

first you have to remember not to delay after rip rip the shirts or you will build a nest of threads frying from your stripes and you will face this fact 


But the best part is the easy to build the quilt

WHAT A MESS

Look what a mess in my sewing room today , yes, it's okay because there is a new quilt will born soon, I hope



Can you see the pile over the table ?

Another clue I am offering :

And another picture from another corner please 


You can guess what is the quilt pattern because you see in the picture some strings or stripes here and there.

Yes a quilt made of 23 shirts and more ( retired ones) keeping them through years , this would be cheaper than a new fabric! right ?    

I am so excited.
