    I get my thrill from using up cycled material as much as possible. I'm on a jeans quilt kick now. Last winter' project was a string quilt of (synthetic) plaid shirt factory cut-aways sewn to backing squares cut from a quilted, king sized bed skirt. When I show these quilts I enjoy explaining how they were made in the old-fashioned utility quilt style. I do new fabric quilts, too, but my real love is "make-do." I have a box of deconstructed men's shirts a la Bonnie Hunter waiting. Should I explain to those who see the result that I get lots of pleasure cuttin' up old clothes?

    Sometimes my thrill is also in making something with as little out of pocket expense as possible.

    However - if selling a quilt - I still think it is reasonable to ask for the cost of replacing the materials used.
