{Post 1,618} Two More Moths

I had hoped to have many more blocks by now, but life happened. On a daily basis. We had company for a couple days, I bought a few more shirts, and we were out of town for two days. That’s my excuse, and I’m sticking with it.

Tonight I cut just one sleeve off 2 shirts and made the two blocks below. The fabric on the left one is a dark purple (my favorite color is purple). The one on the right is a very dark grey stripe.


Here they are with their friends:

Before I can proceed, I need to determine how large I want the finished quilt to be. Bonnie’s is 88-1/2” square, I think. I will figure my final size before I make any more blocks. We have too many quilts that we don’t use because they are a strange (non-bed) size. In the meantime, I’ll debone the rest of my shirts.

Here is my little Valentine quilt on the wire “Welcome” hanger. It is not exactly what I wanted, but I like it. It is at the top of the stairs from the basement.

Seems like life always changes our plans. I noticed you had not posted in a while, glad to hear it wasn't that you were sick or something. I love the plaids from shirts, the blocks are so much prettier. Your quilt will be gorgeous! I like the little heart quilt, too, perfect for Valentines.
