    Two more blocks done for silk quilt...

    I'm really having fun making this quilt. Would love to keep it for myself! My co-worker really loved his Tommy Bahama shirts! Guess I'll be quilting all night and tomorrow!

    The blocks look great! I love how you showcase the prints in the center.

    I'm loving these! I know your co-worker will, too! Is the silk hard to work with?

    Your blocks look great! Are you using a foundation square to stitch them on.

    Yes ... That's the only way I thought I would be able to do this pattern. Used the crazy quilt template for the center and cut 1 3/4" strips. Some a little wider for the last corner pieces if the other size strip didn't totally cover the corner. I used white muslin which I washed and dried for shrinkage.

    I love your idea! Did you prewash the shirts, or are they planning on dry cleaning the quilt? Thanks.
