What materials did you use? My Dad's old shirts - the ones that were too stained or worn to donate to charity. I added the red cotton for contrast and used half a double duvet cover for the backing.

What are you most proud of? This is the biggest quilt I have made so far - I am proud of that and relieved I could quilt it on my domestic machine. ;-)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? There is a really neat way of working out the pattern in the book. Some of these shirts were not 100% cotton, making them harder to sew, either because they were slippery or frayed more. Unless there are sentimental reasons, I'd recommend sticking with cotton.

I would like to know how you did that one

Hi, I made this a while ago now. But I remember that I took the inspiration from a quilt in a book by Karen Snyder called "Bundles of Fun", the book has patterns for quilts made from fat quarters, this quilt was a little different as it was made from my late father's old shirts.

Thank-you, I used to a few years ago, but life changes have left me with less time and even less energy. Perhaps in the future.
