Mama's wagga!

Wonders will never cease-  2 posts in as many days! Just had to reveal the latest quilt finish- inspired by my love of recycling, this is made almost totally of recycled shirts . It came to be this improv design because I saw some wonderful Australian wagga quilts on Pinterest. These were made from warm scraps of fabric for use in the outback I believe, and they can be very colourful and haphazard!

I thought the red polks dots was perfect for binding- this is the only part of the quilt not made from shirts

I had great fun searching for the shirts in charity shops, and I have masses of cut strips left over- plenty for 2more quilts! I may have to lis them on Etsy!

The back is shirts including one pocket and the front buttons!

Ta da-  I love the finished quilt, it is really cosy and warm, with flannelette in the middle. 

Happy Easter folks! xx
