    They are beautiful.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I have 3 or 4 large tubs of shirts cut apart and ready to sew into quilts. I buy them at garage sales, rummage sales, but the best is a thrift shop 20 miles from here that sells as many as you(or they) can pack into a plastic grocery bag-20 or more- for $3. I can't resist that... But haven't found time to start making the quilts..Maybe these pictures will give me an incentive! (too much knitting,crocheting, card games, books to read- not enough time for it all!!!)
    They are beautiful....

    wow, all so pretty. love the upcycle factor and how they turned out and got a second chance at life!!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I love your Pinwheel quilt. I have 2 tubs of shirts cut apart. I bought them last summer for .25 cents each at a church rummage sale. Just trying to decide on a couple of patterns to make something.

    Your quilts are all lovely...and to think I almost didn't look at them because they were made from shirts! Shame on me for assuming that I wouldn't be interested (honestly I am not a member of the quilt police)! We just keep learning as we go, don't we??? Again, Your quilts are beautiful!
