Just stopping bye to Wish those who celebrate Easter a Happy Easter.
While I am here I will share what I have been up to.
I have been spending a little time at the sewing machine.
It started with this
24 of my husband’s business shirts which have worn cuffs and collars. Little Ms A (11) helped me deconstruct and iron these for a quilt top.
I have used part of 8 so far and cut into 8″ squares
These squares were then made into half square triangles using the method at Missouri Star Quilts here.
This is the first time I have made HST and I don’t know why I haven’t before. It really wasn’t hard.
I have now sewn these into a quilt top. I plan to baste in the next few weeks.
I have many 2.5″ strips plus the button section and the yokes which I will use for another quilt top. I haven’t yet cut the shirt front with the pocket either – mainly because I’m not sure how to treat the pocket.
Here is a little update pic of my bamboo t shirt
pattern can be found here
This should be finished soon.
Hope you get some chocolatey goodies
Until next time
