project: quilt #1



i've been thinking about this one for some time. I am straight up copying an idea from my sister: a quilt made from old boxer shorts. is that weird? at first i was kind of grossed out... but actually, the fabric is (usually) good cotton and the prints are fun and intricate enough that it works well with a quilt. There are other fabric scraps i've mixed in as well.

I still have a long ways to go. I need to buy some batting material and figure out what to back the whole thing with... i was thinking an old fitted sheet that used to fit my old bed (full size). Trying to recycle old stuff in the linen closet. Now that i am thinking of it, i'm not sure i still have those old sheets. hmmm...
