{Post 1,471} All Scrap-A-Plenty's Fault

Maybe this is just a reality check, but I don't think I bought THAT many shirts.  If you click on "shirt quilt" under labels, you will see that I have already made quite a few quilts from shirts already.  

I have so many crumbs of my shirts.  I keep them all corralled, so they are easy to access and keep track of anyway.

Top picture is a string of 2-piecers waiting to be ironed.

My friend, N, of Scraps-A-Plenty made a crumb quilt lately.  Hers isn't made of shirts, but mine will be. Look here to see hers.  I like the zigzag setting, so that's what I am going to try.  I don't have many light shirts, so I just cut up some whole pieces of light shirts.  I will eventually have scraps of those as well.  I need some bright colors.  These are really dark and boring.

I have lots of scraps, but I haven't gotten to the point of making crumb blocks. I tried to start one once and couldn't get excited about it. I do use 1" strips and 1 1/2" pieces a lot. I love the look of Scraps-a-plenty's quilt. Good luck with yours. said...

I can't wait to see it! I don't mind taking the blame on this one!
