I just started cutting my husband's dress shirts for a quilt. I removed the buttons and set them aside. As my husband is 6'5" tall and I had 28 shirts, I filled an entire pint sized jar with the buttons.
I think I am going to use the "floating stars" pattern. The shirts are white, off white, yellow, green, gray, light and dark blue and white with pinstripes. (see picture below) I was considering using pink as the main fabric and the shirts as the corners. How does that sound?
