Husband's Shirts Quilt
26/12/2008 - This was the first quilt I ever created. I made it out of my husband's old shirts and one old red sheet that had a hole in it. Luckily my husband wears a lot of blue so all the fabrics matched! I created a zigzag pattern and then randomly replaced some of the squares with red ones, giving the quilt a less orderly look. It took a long time to get the placement right, but the sewing was easy because squares are pretty simple to match up. I made a log cabin section for each of the corners. Since all the fabric in this quilt was from used garments, it's soft and comfortable and we love having it on our bed. .
