blue plaids

Made with reclaimed plaid shirts using the unmatched nine-patch technique I used to teach.
A shirt was given to me this morning by a friend so, shall I make another?

I made this top at least 12 years ago. I had it quilted at least 5 years ago. St Pauls is sending a work crew to Puerto Rico and is having a fundraising auction, just the impetus I needed. The binding is a leftover piece of another quilt binding. Now, some precious handwork time to finish it up!

Can you give us a hint on how to make an unplanned 9-patch block? I really like the quilts you've made with it!!!!

This is such a wonderful looking quilt! You're inspiring me to try and save more shirtings fabrics!
