Don't be skeered!
I know that is one HECK of a quilt top - but I'm sure you'll be relieved to know, I'm painting over it.
Are you okay now? ;)
So there it is - the "shirt" is starting to come to life. And yes, I was right - it's 90" wide by 65" long.
Holy cow, right? But that's because I've used a real men's shirt - and proportionately, it had to be that big.
So it has indeed been a bear to quilt - I've been doing my old trick of quilting with two threads, both heavy white cotton which will show up the best under the paint - but phew! Jezebel doesn't like it much and she's been complaining!
My poor old arthritic hands have been complaining too. *le wah*
In the home stretch now - just over 1/2 quilted - so by the weekend I think, I can start to paint!
See you on Friday with something crafty!
