Shirt Off His Back

2018, W92″xH87″, Repurposed mens shirting. ¬†Machine pieced, Hand quilted

My 2018 New Year’s resolution was to only use quilt materials that I had on hand. My architect husband (with very good taste) use the holiday for some closet-cleaning and I nabbed this collection of outcast shirts for myself. First attempts to machine piece this giant were abandoned and I decided to hand-quilt it using pearl cotton. 200+ hours later, it is now our family treasure.
