striped shirts

After seeing Kim's delightful quilt on Pokeytown Kim blog quite a while back, I was determined to make my variation of it. Hers was based on one by Kaffe Fassett I believe.
Blocks are made to finish at 3", 6", and 9".
I posted my progress as I worked on it, and have finally, this week, finished it.
It is made from thrifted 100% cotton shirts, plus a few from Andy's closet.
Seth loves it and it his is eight grade graduation gift.
I found a great spotted backing fabric.
Quilted by Suzette Fisher.

Oh wow Lynn I like yours all in blues! there are some beautiful shirt box quilts out there. Thanks for giving me credit for being your inspiration. Wasn't it a fun one!
I keep my eye out for strip fabrics to make another one!
You've done a wonderful job on this one and I hope your son loves it.

Happy Sewing
