Little bit more done

I am using recycled fabrics. The colored part of the blocks is men's shirts I have bought at yard sales or thrift stores. The sashing and cornerstones are fabric I have used in other quilts and they have been hanging around for a long period. 

The colored part is 9.5 inch block. The sashing strips are made from 1.5 inch strings. And the cornerstones are cut offs from the strip sets at 1.5 inches and made into 9-patches. It is a simple quilt, but a utility quilt for a couch or recliner. 

The longest part of time is in making the strip sets. Lot of pressing going on doing them. I cut them the length of the fabric instead of the width for added stability. 

This ideas can make up in large floral prints, geometric designs, polka dots, fussy cut sport themed fabric. The choices are endless. 

The idea for this quilt top came from Becky Quilts in the Old Country. She has a Facebook page with free patterns. Her Twin also has fabric at a reasonable price and $5 shipping at quiltedtwins.com Becky Tillman Petersen has many quilt patterns available all free of charge.
