Crazy….or smart. You decide.
I am a Bonnie Hunter fan….a big Bonnie Hunter fan. I have both of her quilt books and even pre-ordered her newest book (Rumor is that they be shipped next week!!) One of her previous books and the newest one both suggest repurpusing fabric and making it into quilts. I keep thinking I want to try it but didn’t quite know how I was going to get enough shirts to make a quilt.
Wonder no more!! I found shirts…lots of shirts.
Can you believe it…39 shirts… $13. One of the local thrift stores was having a sale.. 3 shirts for $1. I am not sure I am going to like this but there should be enough here to give it try. I have spent $13 on crazier things….
My husband, let’s just say he’s thinking it may be a bit odd. Then I showed him Bonnie’s book and he didn’t think it was quite so odd.
If you haven’t seen it, Bonnie gave a sneak peak of her newest book over at Stash Manicure. I am in love with several of the quilts…who thought recycled fabric could make such pretty quilts? Here’s a link to her first book just in case you haven’t seen it.
As far as my stash report goes….I am not counting these shirts in my stash. They are just going to be my guilty (or quilty) pleasure.
So the totals are….
Used this Week: 0
Used year to Date: 34 yards
Added this Week: 0 yards
Added Year to Date: 18yards
Net Used for 2011: 16 Yards
I have a quilt on the quilt rack so…there will be fabric out next week!!
So tell me…smart or crazy? Are any of you using recycled fabric in your quilts?
