    Very nice and beautiful shirt fabrics! How are you going to quilt? I'm working on a small triangle quilt and was stitching diagonally 1/4" away from each side of the long diagonal seam, but I found that doing it on both sides was causing puckers. Stitching down one side seems to be working out better for me and I have some rip-outs. So, I've put it aside for now and will have to rethink my quilting on this one. Curious to know how you will finish yours.

    If you haven't looked in her albums you should go take a peek
    Lorie, I don't piece them together randomly, I use my "designwall" (= white sheet on the floor LOL), to lay them all out.

    I still don't know how to quilt it. I was just as you thinking 1/4" would be working.

    What a great way to recycle men's shirts. Looking at that quilt gives me a really homey feel. Well done, Lenie.

    So pretty, almost nautical!

    Love this! What size are your pieces? Might want to try this. Have several shirts I bought at thrift stores and need to finish something with them. My sis has made several and I love every one.

    @Brenda, this is the template I used. If you have charm size pieces, you can get two wedges out of the charm. https://www.missouriquiltco.com/shop...-pack-template

    Prachtig!

    Deze had ik even gemist, super mooi!
    Kan ook als memeory quilt aangevraagd worden, of hou je het bij vierkantjes in je opdrachten?
    Deze wordt ook weer helemaal schitterend!!!
    It ain't no sin to be glad you're alive!
