The below quilt blocks are made with men's shirts that were either given to me or I purchased at Saver's or Salvation Army stores. 
 I'm making it for one of my son's best friends who has often been interested in my quilting and I know would like a quilt but doesn't want to come right out and ask.  Some of the fabrics are very funky.  I think once it's all put together it will be kind of cool.  I'm using a pattern from Bonnie Hunter's book, "Scraps and Shirttails, Reuse, Repurpose, Recycle"

                                                                      I hope he likes it!


  1. Aw, how can he NOT like it?!? You come through with a winner every time ~

  2. Very cool! You're so frugal to take the time to cut up shirts and repurpose them this way. I love it! And so will your son's friend... I have no doubt!

  3. This is perfect timing! I have just spent the last few days searching the web for pictures of quilts made with re-cycled clothing. I love your quilt!

  4. Love these squares...have been saving some of my husbands shirts for a while now and hope to get around to what you are doing, ONE DAY!!!

    Love the fact that YOUR husband knows what fat quarters are!!!.catching up on older posts!!

  5. I'm sure he will! What great fabrics.

  6. Lovely quilt. There's something special about quilts made with old clothes. The sashing shows off each block nicely.
