Mary's method maintains the soft, flexible personality of all your favorite t-shirts...all those memories and smiles -- combines them with some warm flannel -- and -- WOW...!! What a great idea!!
|When Mary comes to town -- we always have our "Rita's Sew Fun" Reunion. Phyllis, Mary, me, Judy and my sister Ronda.|
|This is a picture from last year, after our visit to the Figge Art Museum, Phyllis and Mary were admiring the napkin folding at the Hotel Blackhawk...|
Me: What day is good for you this week?
Phyllis: I don't know if this week is going to work. Andy (her daughter) is bringing over a basket of t-shirts from her nephew. He's graduating from high school in May, and if we don't get started soon, we'll never get his quilt done in time.
Me: YOU'RE MAKING A TRADITIONAL QUILT OUT OF T-SHIRTS?
Phyllis: Yes, and we have to get them all cut down, and add the interfacing to the back...
At that point, I cut her off...and said..."I'm coming to your house in the morning. Mary Mulari is about to save you $250 and three months of your time..."
IT WAS GREAT. I felt like a SuperHero!! I swooped in with an example of a finished quilt (thanks, Warren) -- Mary's new book/pattern -- and the perfect burgundy flannel flat sheet to use for the backing of the new ragged edge t-shirt quilt.
|I had breakfast with Phyllis, her daughter Andrea and her THREE girls|
|Mary's new system will save them SO MUCH TIME...not to mention the money!!|
BUT -- as a soft, ragged edge flannel blanket weight, it becomes everybody's favorite sofa cover-up...
And THAT's a very good thing!!
Today's MMWI: 258.8. Yippee Kayee!! I lost one pound...which doesn't sound like much, but I AM EXCITED...
