I am so pleased with this quilt . It is made from 5 old shirts . the pieces were cut various sizes in length but I kept the width the same . The edging fabric is from my stash cut 13" wide to make a wide edging . I filled the edging with thick batting , I would say it is about a 6 oz, weight, it is from a duvet cut up that I didn,t need , it is like the thick edges that use to be found on eiderdowns, the back is pieced from 2 different blue fabrics from my stash , the quilting is big stitch naive to give a country look .
I have another 5 blue and white shirts for another quilt . I shall be on the lookout for 3 yellow shirts . I think they will be harder to come by . I shall mix small florals in with the yellow . Also pink shirts I,ll be seeking , I,ll mix spots with pink . These quilts will belong to my country collection .
Bluebell and myself will soon be off to the Malvern show, the tickets are purchased ,and we are champing at the bit.
