Recycled Cotton Shirt Quilt from the past!
I'll be using part of a new (purchased on sale for $12) Ralph Lauren cotton sheet for the backing. Perfect color. Perfect fabric.
And I'll be machine quilting it on my Singer 201 which I named "Leona" after my neighbor, its previous owner.
I hope you can see the red tartan plaids that I carefully cut. Some on the grain. Some on the diagonal. This was great fun to put together, sorta like mindless piecing with careful trimming of the completed blocks to insure same size.
For your viewing pleasure!
And in spite of having two baskets of shirts...I'm always susceptible to buying more. I found two this week at the local thrift shop on sale for 25 cents each. A bargain until I washed them and the red one bled. Tossed it out. Now out of the two, I have ONE 50-cent shirt. lol
