A New Adventure

My quilt made from mens shirts is coming along nicely.I just have to do the horizontal sashing and borders.
I wanted something quick and this seems to fit the bill. It is also very masculine. My husband asked what will I do with the rest of the shirts (I only used a sleeve from each one) I kind of like these plaids and stripes so in my head I am planning another quilt to use this kind of fabric. I also plan to make lap quilts for nursing homes this year and these will make good manly ones.

Your quilt would make a good man's quilt. I love it. I've made a log cabin from shirts but working with four patches might just be my next shirt project :)

Have you seen this great pattern for using 7 plaid shirts?
