The first quilt I made during my "post retirement" era was a tee-shirt quilt for Son #1. It was an ambitious endeavour given my lack of knowledge of all things quilting and since then I've learned SO much. For some reason I saved the leftover parts of the tee shirts (probably for the same reason that I've saved widowed socks for 20 years). During my aimless web searching I came across mention of making a braided rug out of tee shirts. So I dug out the scraps and, much like the way I dove into a quilt project without knowing much, I started to braid. I like the result enough that I'm thinking of making a matching rug. It was a fun TV project since there are no small parts to strain tired eyes and it's easy to start and stop whenever you want.
