    This is my 4th Come Back Quilt. The top is made from Hawaiian Shirts purchased at the local thrift stores. The pattern is from Marguerita McManus' Crazy Short Cut Quilts book. This is a wonderful Quilt As You Go technique.

    I also made some matching pillow shams.

    I have never seen Hawaiian shirts look so good. I love how the sashing brings it all together! Great job.
