Watcth your backs Boys, were after your shirts

How about this!!! I,m so happy the way this quilt has turned out . 5 old shirts ! Round the sides I cut fabric from my stash 13" wide to make a deep border , I had a duvet that I no longer needed , I used really thick filling from it cut in approx 5" wide lengths to make a wide thick edging like we used to have on eiderdowns , The quilting is big stitch naive to give a country look . The back is pieced from 2 different blue ,s out of my stash .

I have another 5 blue and white shirts sourced from the charity shop , all excellent quality . Now I,m on a roll . I want yellow shirts , I know this will not be easy but if I find 3 I.ll add small floral fabrics to make up the required amount .
