Blogger Quilt Festival: Spring 2010

The story about this quilt started with my husbands old shirts. I wanted for a long time to use them to make a new quilt for our bed.  I needed to by a few more plaided fabrics to blend in with the shirts.
The quilting is very simple, and I used knots in every corner. The binding is made of several fabrics. I love the quilt, it is soft and warm. And it is on our bed very day.
This is my contribution for the Blogger Quilt Festival:Spring 2011.

I hope this translates for you - I love your quilt and it is so very special that you get to wrap yourself in your husband's shirts while you sleep.

What a wonderful way to recycle and reuse! Your quilt came out great! I have a stack of my husband's old shirts and now I know what to do with them. Thank you for sharing and the inspiration!

Hei hei. Sengeteppet ble kjempefint. Jeg er storsamler av skjorter selv. Det er gratis, det er gjenbruk og ikke minst så er det så mange spennende ruter,striper og farger på skjorter som du ikke finner i quiltebutikkene. Mitt første blogginnlegg er om min duk av herreskjorter. :-)

Denne quilten er en av mine favoritter. Klassisk og tidløse farger i myke, deilige skjortestoffer. Kjemperomantisk å dele med mannen din!
