T-shirt Quilting

Remember when I was working on this quilt, and I said I just had enough green thread to finish the quilt? Well, I used the very last of it to quilt this block. Just look at how little is left.

This picture still has the marks before I washed them off, but don't you think that looks good for using a walking foot and not doing it free motion? I wish I was able to do it free motion. A little more about that coming soon.

This is the backing fabric and the binding fabric. This will have to do as a close up of both since I did not get a good shot of either before sending it off to it new home.

This quilt was made for a veteran who was an air traffic controller. The fabric has several different aircrafts. If you notice at the very top, there is an airplane dropping parachutes. I thought it was a great fabric for the theme. Also, how can you pass up red and white stripes for binding fabric.
