Shirt Tales

Background

01/10/2010 - A friend of my husband's was visiting while I was quilting. She runs a company that makes custom shirts (Shirts & Co) and she had 4"x7" samples of shirting fabric. She kindly gave me her old samples and I set to work piecing them to create this quilt from over 160 different shirt fabrics. I used Kona White for the sashing and borders to give it the crisp feel I was looking for. The bias binding is from my husband's shirt. All fabric is 100% cotton. I hope this is an inspiration for others to recycle shirts that have worn collars or cuffs, but still have a wonderful second opportunity to be part of a quilt..
