More Thrift Store Quilts

Sujata Shah, 36" x 48", recycled shirts.

A few more quilt tops from correspondents in Washington state.

Sujata writes:
"This quilt is based on the Gee's Bend quilts. I used to teach at a local shop and ran a club for couple of years. The club was called, 'Inspirations from Quilts of Gee's Bend'. I got really interested in free hand cutting and curve piecing. This is made out of shirts and I plan to hand quilt it with pearl cotton. "



Foggy Day Quilt by Dorothy LeBoeuf, 20' x 20"
Dorothy writes:
"...to dispell the fog. Made from solids in stash plus awful curtain fabric. So freeing to work with this stuff, after working with today's expensive fabrics. Also freeing to not use a ruler althugh it seemed strange at first. We are going to be sad when we run out of the awful curtain fabric."

Amazing quilts...I have one made by my grandmother that has part of my father's wedding suit in it. Too bad she made it while my folks were on their honeymoon (she didn't like my Mom much!)

LOVE these quilts. I wish more quilters would embrace spontaneity. I wish I would be more spontaneous too.

Barbara,
I'm with Laurie, I want to be spontaneous, but someone will have to pry my ruler out of my hand first. I linked to your More Thrift Store Quilts at http://barbarabrackman.blogspot.com/2009/07/more-thrift-store-quilts.html
Keep these coming!
