WIP Upcycled Quilt as you go…


Popping in to share an update on my latest quilting project.

I started this project with 23 mens business shirts. I used the sleeves of 20 shirts to make 1/2 square triangle blocks. I have used approximately 2/3 of them to make these 16 blocks. I then used 8 shirt backs to back these blocks in quilt as you go style. The next step is to make the sashing and join the blocks.

The batting is 100% cotton not large enough for a quilt without joining so perfect for this style of quilting.

Until next time

    1. Thanks Dianne. Um not sure! I know I got 2 12″ squares out of each back. I haven’t cut the fronts yet and have about 1/3 of what I cut for the sleeves left. I still have a few shirts to cut so I will take some good notes and let you know!
