ready for auction and feeding the stash

My Sarah's Sisters group at church helped me name these quilts for the auction this weekend. First is Green Whimsy, second is Chicago Blues.
The second is based on Bonnie Hunter's Crayon Box.

Sleeves for Sharon.
I found some of the most lovely shirts I have ever discovered yesterday at the Village in my hunt to replenish my stash (which does not need replenishing) . And, while cleaning the basement, found some more that I had bought earlier. Here they are all trimmed and pressed, a stack for my neighbor who swaps sleeves with me from our thrift shop finds.

Those quilts are so pretty, likewise the new stash. I'd love to see those Chicago thrift shops, although the Value Villages in Atlanta are very very good hunting grounds as well.

Just had to comment to say how much I love both of those quilts - the recycled shirts look so effective (better than new fabric IMHO).

Oh both quilt are just wonderful! But I especially love the first one!

I have an idea for what to do with all the lovely sleeves you gave me! Let's have tea!

And I love, love, love your quilts. Especially the blue one!
