I Run For Wine – a Finished Quilt


Another month, another t-shirt quilt, another race that I’m jealous of.

That would be the NC Half Marathon on the bottom. They had a medal that LIGHTS UP. And you run ON THE SPEEDWAY. This race has been cancelled for the foreseeable future, so sadly I’m checking off North Carolina with a different race this spring.

Ahem, anyway. The quilt. The name is from the fabulous backing fabric {Joann’s local fare, but no idea where it’s local to since I had to order it online.} It’s a common running saying, too, although I’m more of a fan of the “whine now, wine later.”

She’s a Half Fanatic, so I quilted in her number.

And she did the Princess Glass Slipper Challenge {10K/Half, like the Rebel Challenge but not as cool because it’s not Star Wars.} So of course I quilted in a Mickey.

And the rest of the quilting is loops and flowers. How come my best flowers are on the bottom?

The purple sashing is an older Riley Blake Halloween fabric – I bought it in Oklahoma from the clearance section, so it is probably about 3+ years old. Paired with grey cross hatch {the same stuff I used in Fresh Air} because of course I’m using crosshatch when I’m given free range.

Seriously, this backing. I may have ordered extra just so I could have it. Maybe an infinity scarf?

You’ve been busy. The T-shirt quilt looks great!


What a fun finish. I would definitely go along with the whine now, wine later phiosophy. 😉

You are amazing! My friend told me she is saving all of her son’s sports shirts so I can help her make a quilt with them. I told her that I don’t know how to do it. It is different from regular quilts. You are getting to know all the tips and tricks.
