It's made almost entirely of recycled/upcycled material. I cut up shirts from Leslie and my husband's closets and sheets I've been collecting over the years.
This is one of four quilts I recently took to my quilter. I gave her some direction on what I wanted, but then turned it over to be done with as she saw fit. I think she gave it a very nice texture.
The backing is the lighter blue ticking stripe. It was a sheet in a previous life. The binding is yardage from my stash. Love them both!!!!
If I'd ever describe a quilt as being "Me" I'd have to say this is it. I mean -- recycled sheets, reclaimed shirts, ticking, plaid, red -- all things I LOVE! My husband declared it one of his favorite quilts I have made so far. Not really sure why he likes it so much, but I'll take it!
(I'm sure you can guess which one is his all-time favorite.)
