Shirts and Giggles
76 inch square
I'm thinking I may add a nine inch version of those center Broken Wheel blocks to the top and bottom of the quilt in order to make it longer. A 76 x 94 seems more suitable for a bed than a 76 inch square one.
Inspired by a vintage quilt it consists of Broken Wheels, Puss in the Corners and Flying Geese.
I used old men's shirts from the thrift store and some fabric from stash I thought looked like old grandma dresses.
I'm happy with how it turned out but I really think I want to make it longer. I'll set it aside for awhile an then decide. I also need to figure out what to use for the backing. Heaven knows I have a lot of other things to work on and get quilted before this one so I'm not in any hurry.
This is the vintage quilt that inspired mine. It was for sale on Ebay once upon a time.
