    Okay, so it's not a cute little Featherweight born the same year as me, and it's not the humdinger of a leftover stash of a quilter who can no longer quilt. But it is for quilting.

    Bonnie Hunter was the guest speaker at our guild last night and today she is teaching a class.... and I'm not there. :-(

    So I headed to Goodwill, which is where Bonnie said she finds some really great 100% cotton extra large mens shirts for less than $5 each. She has a great book out called "Scraps and Shirttails: Reuse, Repurpose, Recycle - The Art of Quilting Green"

    I can't wait to cut these shirts up :lol:

    They look like they would be nice fabrics in a quilt!

    Congrats on your find! I do it too. Save the buttons for other projects also. :)

    Heck, if I brought them home, I would have to cut them up immediately, or my husband would take them & wear them. :O)

    Good for you! Have you priced shirting fabric lately? Whoa! I'll go to the thrift store any time rather than pay high $$$!
