I promised to share some of the beautiful quilts I found while researching other quilts made from old men's dress shirts. So much loveliness out there.
This first quilt was found over at My Spinning Wheels, a new blog find full of beautiful things. This quilt was made by Jill's mom from her dad's worn dress shirts. She is making one for each of her children.
The shirts were cut on angles, and mixed and match to form a modern patchwork.
Then the pieces were sewn into strips and quilted with a simple grid. The binding was a striped fabric sewn on the bias, so it resembles a neck-tie.
