    Most of them made before I knew there were patterns for quilts.

    Great ideas! I am saving my DH's old shirts - he is gaining weight - so will have enough soon.

    Wow! They are all gorgeous. It is hard to decide but I am partial to 4 and 5 from the top. Five has almost something African going. Very nice all of them and a great inspiration to recycle.

    I love them. They are like my grandma use to make to keep her family warm. I bought a bag full at a thrift shop not long ago to use like this, and also got a lot of buttons. My whole bag, and it was stuffed was $1.00 .

    Those are all fantastic quilts! I have a stack of cut up shirts but other things keep getting in the way.

    Oh yeah--the buttons. I cut them off and keep the set together and use them in other shirts I make.
