dress shirt quilts #3

This quilt is one I saw in an exhibit while we were at Quilt Market last fall in Houston. It is called "Furrowed Fields" by Rosemary Cromer. The sign explained that the quilt "brings to mind a patchwork of rows of tassled corn, wheat fields.. and silo heads heavy with grain. ...It seems appropriate that the materials for this piece are the shirts worn by men who may have worked these lands."

This quilt is the "leftovers" from a quilt called "If These Shirts Could Talk" in the Making Memories book by Deb Rowden.
