Design Wall Monday


I am working on a triple rail fence with random solid blocks added. I think I have enough to make a table runner from a charm pack and a honey bun!
Any advice on making a quilt from hockey jersey's?

Best Highland Games yet! Hubby took second place. He is doing the caber toss here.

Do you have video of Dad flipping the caber?

I imagine you make a hockey jersey quilt the same way you make a regular t shirt quilt. You put an interfacing on the back of the design and cut them out. Pick a go with fabric or two and sash them. Quilting might be a bit tricky but should be fairly easy. Good luck and let us see how you do with them.

Cute split rail quilting, no tips on making a quilt out of hockey shirts but I'm sure you'll get some tips.

Cute little rail blocks. Honeybuns are just so darn cute. A Hockey Jersey shirt should be interesting. I've done t-shirt quilts which get ironed on to interfacing, but those holes may be problematic.

With washings made to look like hokey still ck, of course!

Sorry, in moving car, no I'm not driving, sashings made to look like hockey sticks. There much better.

Congrats to hubby!
Love the name of the fabric line you're using "Happy Campers"!
I think hockey shirts are going to be slippery to work with...Bonnie already left you a comment and she's the expert!

Lovely rail fence blocks, definitely happy looking. Good luck with the hockey shirt thing...

Tossing the caber looks like it takes lots of concentration!

If they are large enough, can you make a pillow out of them by turning inside out, sewing up the neck and arms? Might make some interesting big pillows for a room.

I dread the day someone wants me to make a t-shirt or jersey quilts. Good luck to you!

Cute rail fence blocks, love all the brights. I'd do as Bonnie suggested, make it like a T-shirt quilt. Good luck.
