A Friday Finish


I put the binding on my Scrappy Mountain Majesties quilt and it’s all finished now!

Here is Ruby showing it off.  Remember me telling how easily Gracie  used to jump up on a quilt to get her picture taken….well Ruby does the same thing only without a treat!!  I love it.

As you probably guessed, the quilt is made with recycled 100% cotton shirts.  I started the project last March when my daughter Kelli and I went to Moline to  see Bonnie Hunter.  When we were getting ready to go, I had no idea what fabric I wanted to use for the quilt.  I just happened to have a pile of shirts there that I was trying to cut up so I thought what the heck, make it out of shirts…and I did.

A month or so ago I asked for some advice and the majority of you suggested the borders and binding  just like I did it.   One of the pieces of advice came from Cherie.  She had also made the same quilt from shirts.  You can read about her quilt here.

If you are looking for the free pattern for this quilt you can find that here on Bonnie Hunter’s website.

    Love it in plaids! Mine was done in purples way back when she put up the pattern. We did it as a swap and it came out great!

  22. Laura G says:

    I am so happy you have a puppy who understands the importance of testing and approving your quilts. My puppies and kitties do the same and I do not feel that I am finished with a quilt until they sit upon the quilt and approve it. Of course, Ruby has to approve because the quilt is wonderful. Merry Christmas.
