Way back in the summer, I was in between quilt projects, and Steve was cleaning out his closet. He had a bag full of button down shirts that he no longer wears, and asked me if I could make a quilt out of them. I was up for the challenge! I decided to keep it simple with a Half Square Triangle layout and added some other coordinating fabrics that I had in my stash. All against an off-white background. This is what I came up with - It is a lap sized quilt and currently is placed on the arm of our big red chair that is Steve's TV watching spot.
Steve came up with the idea to make a Patchwork Shirt out of some of the scraps. I think it's pretty clever!

I had to put this quilt on hiatus in the Fall when a few other projects arose, but finished it earlier this year and we finally took it out for a photo shoot. Definitely the most masculine quilt I've made to date!
