I'm trying to clean and tidy a little each week (outside the normal housework). This week I decided to sort through old clothing destined for the op shop. After making this quilt, which included a lot of synthetic fabrics, I thought I would never make another quilt out of shirts. However, when feeling these soft, 100% cotton shirts, I decided to salvage them ala Bonnie Hunter. I also get a lot of inspiration from Julie.
So I snipped off buttons and de-constructed the shirts eliminating all the seams. Each shirt easily yields more than a half metre of useable fabric. 25 shirts in all. I will probably work with them next year (a starting year). Unless of course my resolve weakens...
Have you ever made a quilt out of shirts?
