Make a Beautiful Throw Quilt from Men’s Shirts
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 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 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″.
