    I have finally finished the quilt for my brother made from his old shirts. Thanks to all who gave me suggestions for a quick easy pattern. I eventually decided on this one based on a quilt I saw in a magazine and used machine embroidery on the plain squares. My brother loves the sea and we are going on a cruise in two weeks so hopefully the quilt will remind him of the wonderful time we had (I know we are going to).

    That's great! I love it. I definitely want to do a whole quilt in men's shirtings some time.

    Good job!

    Very nice, I love the understated effect you got with the subtle shirting fabrics, very soothing.

    Thanks so much for the kind comments. The finished quilt is so soft because of the pre - used fabric although that did make it a little difficult to work with. The blocks are not quite perfect but I am pleased with the overall effect and my brother likes it. He and his partner had good fun recognising the different fabrics. Canny

    Very nice indeed. It is masculine without being dark...very refreshing.

    Fabulous. I have to agree with the previous poster who said it is soothing. That quilt makes me want to stretch out and roll up in it (hope that wasn't TMI - lol! )
    :P

    No not too much information, I am flattered because that is exactly what I wanted for my brother something to roll up in and feel like he is getting a hug!

    This is so nice! So very thoughtful of you. What a treasure, and didn't have to get it from a treasure chest in the bottom of the sea!
