Still Hand Quilting My Latest Shirt Quilt

My hand-quilting project (the shirt quilt) is coming along nicely. We seldom watch TV but when we do, I pick up this project and work another block. Here are a couple photos.

Each and every fabric in this quilt, including the border strips, came from 'barely-used' shirts and blouses. If you want to try this yourself, try for an assortment in terms of stripes, plaids, paisleys, florals, etc. And stick to a particular colorway. This quilt would look really weird if I had included vivid green, for instance. On the other hand, there are some really nifty shirts out there...oranges, yellows, purples, etc.
