I almost forgot! Last year I saw a challenge on Tracee’s blog for a shirt challenge. The challenge was to make a quilt using only the fabric from 6 shirts and one additional fabric. We could also use other fabric for the binding and backing.
I already had a stack of shirts that DH was getting rid of, so this was perfect for me. Terry from Terry’s Treasures was also doing a SAL of Charming Stars, a free Moda pattern. When I saw that my friend Sheila was going to combine the two projects, I blatantly copied her. Thanks Sheila!
Sadly, my poor quilt is not yet quilted, but I’ll do my best to get it finished in November. And would you believe I have enough fabric squares left over that I could make another entire quilt? It’s amazing how much fabric can be salvaged from 6 shirts.
Hop on over to Tracee’s blog to see how creative all the other ladies were!
Keep on stitching……Sunny
