Plaid Obsession

I've wanted to make this quilt ever since I first saw it on Julie Ks blog   I have a couple of friends who have been saving shirts for me and finally had enough different plaids to make this.  Ha, I think I cut enough strings for 3 of these quilts.  Which will be nice to have for donation quilts for guys, those always seem to be in short supply in my sewing room ;)

My husband was home yesterday and decided he wanted to help, holy smokes!  And help he did. We got 53 string blocks completed, 110 sashing blocks and a good start on the 9 patches.  I really was fun having him help :)  Today I'm going to try to get those 9 patches finished and the rows together.  What fun.

  2. I'm obsessed with every quilt Julie K puts on her blog! She's amazing, isn't she!?! This one is wonderful, and I used up a ton of plaid strings when I did it! Woot! How nice that your hubby helped you with it.....I'll bet it was a fun day together! :o)

  3. Oh-Wow, Sue. I love it! You both did a wonderful quilt! I have a ton of plaid shirt scraps, and some soft brushed flannel plaid scraps. I want to do this quilt! You have inspired me. I'll have to check out Julie's blog. A different way to do a string quilt, and beautiful!

  4. I've always loved this quilt pattern too and is on my bucket list. I just haven't started getting plaid shirts yet - not sure where to put them.

  7. Oh that must have been fun having your husband quilt with you! My husband says when he retires he's going to learn how to long-arm and make income that way. I think he'd make an excellent one!

    I love this quilt too! It's the reason started saving thrift shirts in the first place. Now I have a million of them LOL!!!
