COLLARS AND CUFFS




Gotta love those mens shirts huh??? Even the sashing I used in these blocks is made of recycled mens shirts. When I was a newbie,(Ha!!!! Many years ago...mmmmmmmmm) whenever I took apart a shirt, the collars and cuffs would go in the trash (YOWZA!!). Of course, that was a waaaaaayyyyy long time ago. Now the collars and cuffs go in the STRIP bag to be used at a later date. It's so much fun!!! Mens shirts are sturdy and soft and make quite a cozy quilt. Winter is coming and snuggling in a quilt in front of the fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate and cookies....ummmmmm... what could be better? I can smell the chocolate chips now!!!
