Back to the FWQ

I've felt somewhat bereft of late as I haven't completed any blocks for my Farmer's Wife Quilt, but now that I've finished piecing the 'Pretty in Pink' quilt top, and the hand quilting on it is underway during the evenings, I managed to squeeze in just one block this week.

The rest of this past week has been taken up with de-boning some old shirts and cutting them into squares so I can make a start on my grandson's Disappearing Nine-Patch.  Here it is, all cut out.


  1. I have just made a quilt out of old shirts for my dad. He loves it. I am going to use some more left over shirt to make a shirty scrappy trip quilt.

  2. I love all of those old shirts. They'll make such a great quilt.

  3. Both projects are going to be awesome. I love that you are using up the old shirts!

  4. love disappearing nine patch, shirts seem to be the in thing to use at the moment, none left in the charity shops!
