Enslaved Quilts! [Quilting] [Music]

So I had not quilted in about 10 years and what better way to begin again that with a damn hard project. Knits are not fun to sew with....
One of my all time favorite bands is Norwegian extreme progressive metal band Enslaved. So needless to say, I have a butt-load of shirts from the seeing them in concert a number of times. So it was time to make some room in the closet and pay tribute at the same time!

Beginnings...

It has begun!

I first cut shirt fronts and backs into 14 inch squares. The 16x16 square ruler is my new friend.

Then I put black fusible interface on the back to make them easier to deal with.

Some cut blocks.

I did this a little different from a regular quilt in that I quilted each square individually and then sewed them together afterword.
