    Moda Shirt-oops

    From what I can see, either I got the top row wrong or the pattern does. It was supposed to end up 11X13 before adding the little borders. I could cut off the extra inch at the top but I think I will add a little strip to the bottom to make a 13X13 inch block. I will not add the other borders. I did this out of scrap fabric to see how to goes together. Ended up cute though .Name:  image.jpeg

    I've not made it, but looking at the pattern I downloaded, I think the top row(D) should be part of the sashing that would go on the bottom. Without that top row it should be close to the 13 x 11.

    Still very cute and great fabric!

    That is so clever! You turn the fabric inside out for the inside of the shirt??? Marvelous. I'm so taken away I don't care what size it is!

    ​Yes the fabric gets turned wrong side up for the neck. Sewstephanie posted the pattern link from Moda in her Aloha-cute little Hawaiian shirts post.

    That's really cute, my only problem would be that my husband would then want a shirt out of all the prints. That's his favorite thing in fabric shops is to spot great shirt material.

    Toverly, you can get your DH into a fabric shop??!! Wow!! My DH sits in the car, has a nap or plays on his phone and always asks me if I know that I have been in that particular shop for XX number of minutes.

    BTW Tartan that is very cute! I also admired Sewstephanie's block. Great way to use little prints. Guess you could do something similar with girly fabric. Maybe a scooped neck with a ruffle.....no...no! I am not going to the sewing room to try my idea! Well..maybe tomorrow..

    He loves them. At one shop, he asked if they had a broom and ended up blowing off their sidewalk outside with their leaf blower. He finds a way to stay busy. I may even have him going to Houston in 2020. He wants to test out the different long arms. Even though, I don't want one.

    My husband too! He now has all kinds of shirts. He never complains about going to fabric stores.

    Just what I needed, but yeah -- among my many funky fabrics I have shirts to make!

    Here's the original thread (I think)
    https://www.quiltingboard.com/pictur...ml#post8316306

    and in it is the "I had several prints from my Maui trip a few years ago and started this quilt before my trip a month back. I picked up some more and love the way this turned out. It is a pattern from Moda" http://www.modafabrics.com/fp_cfac-sunshine.pdf

    This would be a great pattern for using shirts that belonged to a loved one. It would be a lovely keepsake. Also the same shirt could be made into a few blocks for different quilts.

    Tartan, that's absolutely adorable! Iceblossom, thanks for posting the links. The pattern does show a strip at the bottom of the shirt.

    The pattern shows that the white sashing is the bottom of the shirt, so no white need be added to the block. The white sashing is also at the end of each sleeve.
