I saw a news clip with some anonymous British man who said, "What are we gonna do? We'll get on with it. We're England; it's what we do."
On to the quilt. This is my second piece for the same customer - I did a similar (but slightly more Beatles/Lennon) quilt for her about a year ago. This year, not long after Christmas, she contacted me and said she still had more shirts and wanted to do another quilt. What with one thing and another, it took a while for me to get the shirts from her, and longer to get started.
Thankful for understanding (and local) customers.
In addition to the Beatles and John Lennon (and the particularly cool Lennon artwork and original lyrics in the bottom left), this one also has shirts from four local Philly music festivals, and a Rock the Vote/Censorship is UnAmerican shirt front and center.
One more thing . . . she still has more shirts. There might be a third quilt in our mutual futures. She said that even if she can't display them all, they take up far less room on a shelf than a bag full of unworn t-shirts.
