I did overall swirls on this t shirt quilt for a customer. I loved the layout and it makes great use of the t shirts of different sizes. It turned out to be soooo adorable and the pieced back is perfect!

I enjoy watching for the Pantone color of the year announcement. This year I was shocked it was 2 colors and it was baby pink and blue. OMG, this is so 1986. I can’t go back there. I have to say it was the most awful color combo’s in décor and clothing. It reminds me of all things floral, bows and baby quilt colors of this time period. I must say that I am not into pastels much and not going to buy this seasons fabrics in this combo. I don’t expect 1986 to be back in my décor either. Hopefully, next years colors will be better.
