All week long I have stealing bits of time here and there. When the phone would ring I would turn the phone on speaker and pin a row….I would pin a row on each evening. Gradually day by day, I ended up with this….
The top is finished! This is Criss Cross Applesauce. It is made with shirts. After seeing it in pictures, I wonder if I should have added blue borders instead…but all in all…I love it.
If you are looking for the pattern, you can find it here in Bonnie Hunter’s Scraps & Shirttails II: Continuing the Art of Quilting Green. This quilt was on my UFO list so I am so-so happy to have this one step farther to completion.
There were no number movements in my stash…
Here are my numbers…
Used this Week: 0 yards
Used year to Date: 45 yards + 16.5 Moda fabric + 6 yards of recycled fabric…

Gorgeous quilt!!! The green border is perfect. :-)
I love this! A blue border would have over-powered, the green works so much better/
Love the quilt! I’d have no problem snuggling under it!
Looking good, Jo! But no close ups so we can appreciate all the fun of the fabrics of the shirtings? Awww, that’s no fun! But it is beautiful!
that’s a great quilt! i agree with you that the green borders just fit that quilt to a T.
Nice job, and a nice finish! Congratulations on using up all those shirtings and little bits of “spare” time.
YAHOO for YOU! IF you are totally unhappy with the green border, ship it to me, start piecing a new one for you and I will quilt and bind it! HA!!!! :)
looks really great…
Jo. another beautiful finish to a ufo. i have one of these on my wish list but need to get more shirts.
Another fabulous quilt Jo. Nice job!
Awesome job. I did my Orca Bay entirely from shirt. Love how they work together. The stripes and plaids add so much to a quilt.
Great choices – great project! Glad I stopped by!
Jo, Congrats on getting your top together. It’s beautiful!!!
The quilt is beautiful. I love the colors.
Oh Jo, that’s gorgeous! I think the green border is perfect.
Oh it’s beautiful!
It turned out great. It makes me want to get back to mine.
I absolutely love it, as I love most of the things you do. I must race down to the basement to find my copy of the book and start one ! thanks for the inspiration
As usual, you do gorgeous work! Congrats on getting an UFO done!
What a beautiful quilt Jo! I haven’t ventured in to working with shirts yet but the beauty of your quilt makes me want to make a mad dash to the thrift stores!
Jo–Great job once again. Having a UFO finish makes one feel good and ready for another project. I cannot wait to see what you have hiding from us on your secret project. I will be good. Have a great day.
I think that blue borders would have been fine, but the green borders add a zing that livens the design. How big is the flimsy? (It looks huge to me. That happens with Bonnie’s quilts, I know from much experience. )
Love this quilt did you put one of your mistake blocks with the red x in it to be different. LOL
This is way cute (is that appropriate to say about a quilt made with shirts??)
I love it!
