I'm quilting again ... It's a Jeans-and-Shirt Quilt this time. More details later, when I have more pictures, and a bit more time to blog.

So, several weeks ago, I finished that pair of socks that I was knitting for a year or so ... And, of course, I love them!
Therefore, it made perfect sense to start another pair!
I enjoy the fact that this sort of project is very portable!

This one has been a lot of fun already! I'm hoping to have more pictures soon. But for now, here's my inspiration ... This Pin, a picture of somebody else's jeans quilt. I LOVE the style! Turns out, my rendition of this quilt requires somewhere past 700 of those little colored squares! That's s good thing, though: I'm finally starting to make a dent in my big box of shirt-plaids!

"Both of the links above have great, lengthy explanations ... but the short version is, if you sew together a couple of tiny squares, in between each seam of what you're really working on, the tiny squares keep you from having all those long threads at each end of what you're really working on. You sew straight from one piece onto another, then afterward, you snip the tiny thread between ... So, what you're really working on gets sewn, and the little squares you're sewing together for something else also get done."
The next step? Trim them all square, and then they'll be ready to assemble!
I have no idea what I'll do with this quilt when it's done, but it'll end up being about twin-sized, which is a very versatile size, so I'm happy about that.

I love the ease and the speed of crocheting with T-Shirt Yarn! T-Shirt Yarn crochet also makes great rugs (see pictures here, here and here.)

All the fabric was cut from actual T-Shirts, except the green "sashing" strips, which were cut from a cotton jersey bed sheet.

Earlier this year, when I had more T-Shirts that I could possibly use for a while, I made a set of T-Shirt Yarns to see if they would sell on eBay.

So, now I've got 5 blocks with one Dresden Plate each ...
