Shirt Quilt

I loved quilt pattern in issue 14 of Homemaker magazine 

and decided to make one for my son Harry using shirts. 



Backing fabric is one piece

 all backed with fleece blanket 






All from a pile of shirts and a fleece throw
I'm delighted with result. 
The quilt took about 21 hrs total to complete.

Your shirt quilt looks fabulous! I really like the freshness of the fabrics. I made a painting apron from 3 blue shirts, and a cushion from 4, but I don't think I will have the patience to make a whole quilt!

Thanks Jane the pattern I used was really good but time consuming. I'm working on a second shirt quilt using squares all the same size has been a bit faster.
