I have been saving my husband’s worn out dress shirts for years to use the fabric for quilting. They are too worn at the collar and elbows for him to wear to work, but there is plenty of good fabric left for quilts. I made one quilt from them a year or so ago and used the pockets and plackets for interest.
A friend gave me a nice stack of shirt fabric that she had acquired from a custom shirt maker as discarded samples.
The “Trail Mix” quilt from All People Quilt has been on my to-do list for years, and I decided it would be perfect for these shirt fabrics. (The pattern is free; you can click on the name and link to the page.)
I’ve made the first two types of block and have arrived at time to make the blocks that provide the accent rows of tiny blocks. I don’t think I have a shirt bright enough to make these accents stand out, so I’m considering solids from my stash. Any opinions about which would work best?
Thanks for your advice!
