    This is new by Timeless Treasures. They always have great novelty prints but this one makes me ask... WHY?

    Maybe I'm just not feeling creative today. But I have no ideas as to what you would do with this.

    What do you think? Any ideas out there?

    It could be used as a back for a quilt made from DH shirts!

    It would work wonderfully in modern quilt designs. I love it!

    I can see that one going to the 50% off rack rather quickly.

    I'd buy it! Kinda cool, don't know what I would do with it, but I would just add it to the "stash"!

    How about making a different type of 'Sunbonnet... Silas'? Bow tie, bowler hat... you could have lots of fun!

    All I can think of is curtains for a laundry room. It would be good for a unifying border or sash for a memory quilt of a man's shirts.

    I agree with the sale rack idea.

    It isn't terrible, but seems like something very project specific.

    That's an idea... Only my dh shirts go from dress/good shirts to work shirts to there's not enough fabric left to use for anything else. :(

    It would make a quick and easy whole cloth quilt for a young man going off to college or getting his first apartment.

    I think it's cute - I'm partial to novelty prints. It would look cool with some red fabric made into a man's lap quilt. Great for a Father's Day gift.

    I kind of like it, but have no idea of how I would use it. I like the idea of using it for a backing on a quilt made with men's shirts.
