I've also got three of my pieced borders for this quilt done. This looks good enough to be it's own beginnings of a quilt, but I will resist starting anything new for now.

Look at these yummy fabric squares I won from Caroline Simas from her blog Designing for the Soul. Caroline is an artist and designs fabric as well as other art works. At the moment she is having a giveaway for a skin for an ipod 4 (for those of you who know what that means. My mobile phone is about 5 years old and is showing signs of failing (sigh) and I can't even begin to imagine breaking in a new one.)
One of the things I really like about Caroline is that she shares her inspirations for her designs. She is a woman of faith who walks with God and she shares her wonder and amazement of His glorious creation through her art. We should all be so inspired!

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?
