shirts-boxed

I can’t say that I’m finished — only that I can easily get the big bucket of shirts closed.  It’s amazing how little space a shirt takes up once you rip it down to flat pieces of fabric.  There’s a small laundry basket of cuffs, collars, button plackets and shirt tails/strings which still needs to be dealt with.

It looks like there is a blue quilt in my future.  At the moment I’m leaning toward something like this — only made from the shirts.  Each block would have a light and dark blue fabric, but not all blocks would be the same.

The blocks would be made from 2 1/2″ strips, so I’d end up with bonus HST squares from the pinwheels.

I’m not sure when I’ll start cutting fabric.  There are a couple of things ahead of this.

1. Kevin the Quilter - January 30, 2013

I have received several shirts from friends, and am in the process of de-boning them. I am looking into one of Bonnie Hunter’s patterns, but, haven’t decided which one I will use them on yet.
