    Mens' Shirts Quilts

    Over a year ago I started helping a friend with her first quilt you can find the post here http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...t-t151435.html . 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?

    Im not sure about the tissue holder shirts, never seen them, going to google that! Its origami shirts. The pattern is called Aloha shirts, and was purchased at the LQS.

    Hi,
    Lots of men have an overabundance of dress shirts from years of clocking 9 to 5 at the office. But never have we seen them put to such fresh, modern reuse as in this quilt...

    Great idea! Love the basket.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    I love those little shirts! Wouldn't they be a fun thing for a baby quilt?
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.
