What are you most proud of? That it's square! Working with shirtings is difficult because they are different weaves and different fabric contents. There was a lot of distortion during cutting and sewing. It took a long time, but I squared up each block after they were all sewn together. Otherwise I'm sure it would have been a giant mess!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This shouldn't be that difficult if you are using all quilting fabrics. Squaring up your blocks is a must!

I've been saving my hubby's worn out work shirts and can't wait to have enough for a quilt. This version is just beautiful and a great gift for your friend. Well Done!
