Recycled shirts quilt
This quilt is made entirely from recycled shirts from the Goodwill Store - the backing too. Or you can raid you husband's (brother, Dad, sons, whatever) closets and dig out those old 100% cotton shirts. The pattern is from Nancy Rose's blog - Life's A Stitch. She did hers from only 7 shirts - I had to add extras for the backing. I just kept piecing fronts and backs till I had the size I needed. It was a fun project. Mine finished at 52 x 64. This one is definitely masculine colors, but you could chose women's shirts in brighter colors. There are some other pictures on her blog. (Pieced 2009, quilted Jan 2011)
