~ Quilt Made With Jeans & Shirts ~

So this is what I had been busy doing and also a bunch of other things as well.........
A family member ask me to make a quilt using her late Dad's clothes . She gave me 2 jeans and a bunch of shirts . This is the first time I make a quilt using this design . It was a fast and easy quilt to make .I know I will be using it again .

Here it didn't have its binding on . I used the dark fabric for the small inter border and also for the binding . I love it!!!





Hunter Star is made using off white fabric.
