T-shirt quilt progress

I'm making progress on the comissioned t-shirt quilt.   Both sides are complete and I'm now in progress of pinning and quilting the monster quilt.   So far 7 our of 35 block pairs are quilted.  

My customer wanted a minimum of quilting in it.   So I'm quilting a 1/4 inch away from the block edges (way too hard to match and exactly stitch in the seam allowance) and then doing machine tacking in the block itself in areas where the t-shirt prints have spaces that match up on both sides.  I've slowly figured out how I need to pin each block in order to get thing lined up for which I'm thankful.  

I'm looking forward to getting the quilting done on this and moving on to the binding!


Top pic is a full size shot of the front of the quilt,  Both are shown draped over a 6 foot tall ladder.   I'm using a light-weight, king-sized quilt batting in the quilt.

Gratitudes:

1. My counts decided to rebound on their own.

2. Gorgeous weather!

Looks good. We have rain and snow predicted. Too warm here for snow but north will probably get. They have e-learning lesson for snow days.

Very nice and I'm sure it was not easy to sew or quilt!

And who's helping you hold that big boy on the ladders? Great quilt, great gratitudes. Now I understand why you had to pin so much.
