Plaid Shirt Gets New Life in Awesome Quilt! This plaid shirt was rescued from a thrift store and is starting a new career as a 46" x 51" wall quilt. Great colors. Put a lamp near this quilt and bask in the cheerful pink glow. Wonderful quilt.
Machine pieced, and quilted with clear monofilament thread on the front, pink thread on the back. The 1/4" black and white striped binding is neatly hand-sewn on the back. Quality workmanship. I've been quilting since 1966.
All materials are 100% cotton, all new except the plaid shirt which was laundered, of course, and is in very good shape. The quilt is new with a crisp feel. If you prefer the slightly puckered look of vintage quilts, simply wash your quilt using a gentle setting then lay flat to dry. My home is smoke free and pet free.
This quilt has a hanging sleeve on the back, along the top of the quilt. If you want to hang your quilt, simply insert a straight curtain rod (or a dowel) into this tube. Put two nails in the wall that protrude about an inch, then place the rod on the nails. Your quilt will hang nice and flat and straight. You can see this sleeve in Photo #3.
All of my quilts are signed and dated with a label on the back.
If you would also like a custom label, just write your text in the special instructions box when you check out and I'll attach a label to the back for you. (For example: "Happy Birthday Amy, Love Mom and Dad, 2011") Giftwrap available. Both complimentary.
If you're not satisfied, just notify me within 30 days and return it for a full refund. I want you to be delighted with your quilt.
