I have completed my first block in my t-quilt. Doing this block of Sashiko embroidery has taught me that this will be a very, very long project. This t-shirt is five movies worth of work time. Knowing that, I have sorted and prioritized my t-shirts and will first embroider the shirts from high school and college. Which means this is really block zero and the next shirt I do will be the first block in the t-quilt. If and when I finish that quilt I will start on the post-college t-shirts.
I’m pretty happy how this turned out. It doesn’t look super professional, but it’s doing what it should, namely holding the stretchy t-shirt to the solid block of fabric behind it.
