A few weeks ago I saw a beautiful quilt made with shirt fabrics on Red Pepper Quilts. It made the cogs in my brain slowly spin, and a few days later when, serendipitously, my husband was cleaning shirts from his closet to donate, I grabbed a few before they were already loaded into the trunk of his car. Wouldn’t it be a great project to save fabric for the next few years to make each girl a quilt from daddy’s shirts?
Unfortunately some of the shirts I grabbed weren’t 100% cotton. Just to err on the side of caution (and because I have absolutely no natural sewing instincts—wait till you hear in my next post about embroidery!) I didn’t cut up any of the shirts with stretch or other fibers besides cotton. There is one mystery shirt that my husband says is cotton, but I’m pretty sure it has silk in it, and it’s a custom shirt so there’s no tag. But the fabric was so soft, I couldn’t pass it up!
Here’s to the start of another project, he he!
Have a great weekend!
