It’s Great in Any Color Theme!
Men’s shirts are a great source of cotton fabric and are easy and inexpensive to come by. Re-purpose no-longer-worn shirts from your guy’s closet and give him the resulting quilt for Christmas, Father’s Day, or just because.
This is also a special way to create a memory quilt from shirts that belonged to a loved one. Or look for gently used cotton shirts at yard sales and thrift shops.
For this throw-sized quilt, you’ll need six shirts in colors that work nicely together. Since it’s simple to make the quilt larger (just add more rows and/or make the rows longer) you may want to start with more than six to give yourself options.
A white background will work nicely with shirts of any color theme. Or go ahead and use another color that complements the shirts you’ve chosen.
The completed quilt, designed by Marie Duncan for Yarnspirations, is 42″ x 48″.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
