Favorite Finish Monthly Linkup - August 2020

Welcome to August's Favorite Finish Monthly Linkup!

I hope everyone had a good August, we just started school (virtually) here in South Carolina.  It has been a learning curve but it seems to be going pretty well.

My favorite finish this month was a challenge quilt I made for my local Greenville Modern Quilt Guild's challenge.  The rules were to create something quilted that had to be at least 50% recycled fabrics.   

Due to the pandemic, I did not want to go to Goodwill so I used what I had around the house.  I called my quilt "Two T-shirts" because it was made using two t-shirts (original name right?).  This was first ever time sewing or quilting with knits.

The gray shirt was an old college t-shirt from Carnegie Mellon, the college I went to and the black shirt was an old college t-shirt from Purdue where my husband went.  The size of the quilt was dictated by the amount of fabric I could cut from the shirts.

I used a nice thick black 12 wt Aurifil quilting thread for the quilting and bound it with an old Rifle Paper Co print.  My quilt did not win, but I had fun making it and playing with knits for the first time.

Ready for the party?  

Here is a reminder of the party details:
  • The linky party will open at 12:01am EST on the last day of the month and will be open for 5 days, through the 4th at 11:59 pm EST.

  1. The two-tone t-shirt quilt came out great! Love the graphic nature of it, love the binding. Applauding your creativity and embracing the true spirit of the challenge. Liz in Houston

  2. I like that the mini is a combination of one of your college t-shirts and one of your husband's college t-shirts. And the Rifle Co. binding frames it really nicely.
