Not just another tshirt quilt....

Out of the blue I was contacted by a young lady from New Jersey who had a request for me.  She wished  for me to construct a tshirt quilt for her daughter who is a dancer.  She had two strictures; zebra fabric and no large swathes of knits.  Happy to comply.

 I didn't quite capture the entire piece.

Block detail.  I quilted her name into this block.
This was truly a learning experience.  To help tame the "wonkiness" of the knits, I backed the fabric with a lightweight interfacing.   The less stable knits, especially the lycra blends, were still quite a challenge.
