There is a Mystery quilt finishing up for you to down load at Bonnie Hunters Quiltville. It is called Ocra mystery quilt. You can down load for later but she is generous . Bonnie gives lots of freebies out and you can use scraps for most if you save them .She share tips and other sites to go to . .I bought her Shirtails book. So check out Bonnie's site and check out her books also .
I also made a quilt had called 7 shirt quilt.by Nancy Rose U use 7 mens' shirts to do the quilt. http://thethriftyquilter.blogspot.ca/2009/06/seven-shirts-seven-steps-one-thrifty.html I got a 3 X shirt there is probably a yard and a half of fabric. If you pay 2.oo for it, that's pretty cheap for 100% cotton!!!!! . I finished mine in Florida last year. It is heavy actually and warm. A nice couch throw for chilly nights or days. Thanks Nancy.......I posted it before. A picture of it earlier so go back through my postings for a picture of it. Our guild did the project as a one day workshop. It takes time but they turn out nice and its cheap to do,especially if you buy shirts at good will etc on 50% OFF DAY .I have about 25 shirts i have hanging in my closet for my shirt stash. Between that and saving the selvages from fabric now it fills up your extra space fast.
