This blog is where I share with you all my quilting and sewing progress. I love English Paper Piecing and hand quilting but also enjoy making small items like pincushions and throw cushions. Please leave your comments and let me know you've dropped by.

Also, please feel free to have a look at my new cycling blog. This is a new hobby for me so there will probably be some fun and falling on the way!! Click on the pic at left hand side.

Shirty Quilt Fabrics

My "shirty quilt fabrics" stash is growing slowly and I thought I'd just give you a look at the shirts I've bought so far from charity shops. The other day when I went into town our local Save the Children shop had a sign on the window which said, "Fill a bag for £1.00"". I didn't need a second bidding! While there I got another two shirts, so here's what I've got so far......

There's actually quite a lot of fabric there as most of the shirts are quite big and two of them have long sleeves.I was thinking of a cunning plan though! I could wait until dear hubby goes out somewhere, then I would cut the sleeves off his shirts, hem them and say they were short sleeved all the time and he must be experiencing senior moments!! But I wouldn't do that. He'd just get shirty with me!!

Off now to work on my "snowball" quilt which seems to be taking f-o-r-e-v-e-r!!!

  1. Flannel shirts make wonderful quilts. Do you know what pattern you'll be using for yours? I have a stash of old shirts started but haven't decided on a pattern yet.

  2. I'm collecting shirts too....someday I'll decide on a pattern!! You have a nice selection there!
