    Mens' Shirts Quilts

    Over a year ago I started helping a friend with her first quilt you can find the post here Helping a widow make a quilt from shirts, a blast! . Due to life in general she hasn't been able to work on it much, so I offered to finish. Sending me home with a large black trash bag full of mens' shirts, I knew I could get several full size quilts from the bag. The first picture is made from her block of choice. And the second picture is a block that I designed. The background on the second quilt is a sheet that she also sent along. The rest is all shirt fabric.

    I like what you created. It is perfect for the fabric provided. Your basket design is adoarable. Yours are fine examples of using fabrics from a source other than the fabric shop to create something beautiful and memorable.

    Great top and block! Great little folded shirts on the in-between blocks. Are they done like the tissue holder shirts?
