Default Framed 9 patch scrappy: Recycling clothes into quilt tops.

I've been wanting to make a few quilts by ONLY using fabric I can buy here locally.

I started by buying some shirts. So far I've made 4 tops from the shirts. This is the latest one.

I'll show the other ones when I finish them, but this is one finished today.

It definitely takes more time to work with clothing. Lots more.

But I got the neat idea of leaving on the labels from a lady who lives in Spain (off this board). I think it adds interest. Here are some of them: Remember, all these shirts were purchased used here in Poland.

Thanks. You're too kind. I don't post the "not so interesting" ones!

What a fabulous job you did. I've only made one quilt from every day clothing, and I can agree with how much more time it takes.

Talk about taking quilting back to its roots.....using what you have and what is local to make a work of art.

You did it and it's terrific. Love the labels too, I look forward to seeing the rest when you are done.
