Shirt quilts, cardinal winner
Worked again today on the blocks made from my dad's shirts - I did about 10 of the style on the left, though I have spared you photos of all of them. There are now 24 of these, so I can put them together into a top at some point - maybe tomorrow.
And then I decided to do some log cabin blocks from the shirts as well - using the red one as the centre, and a solid blue on one side. I won't use the shirts with the really large patters in these log cabin blocks, as I don't think they will work too well, but the smaller prints should work ok - here are two finished blocks (they are 15") and I have several others started, and bits cut for more. I think I will work on them again tomorrow, before reverting later in the week to some smaller things I have due this month, like postcards, etc. I love log cabin blocks and have been debating doing some with these shirts - I hope they'll work out ok!
And the lucky winner of the little cardinal block is... Penny in Australia! Congratulations Penny. I will email you to let you know as well. New giveaway tomorrow - not sure what yet, but I have a stack of stuff...
