While visiting my son and his family this week I did my first thrift shop shopping for linens. I bought several pillowcases, a men's shirt and 2 sheets. I will cut the pillowcases and shirt into fat quarters and save the sheets to use as backing for a quilt. Isn't the handkerchief print fabric perfect for a little boy's quilt?
I know I need many more pillowcases, but this is the beginning of my stash for a quilt using all recycled linens.
Today I did a little more work on the Circle me Back to Amsterdam quilt. I am using the glue method to stick the circles to the squares before I raw edge applique them to the squares. It's going really quick. I am waiting for one more Kona solid to arrive so I don't want to get to many done so I can be sure to balance the colors.
Here's a few construction photos.
I hope you are all having a good weekend. We have beautiful weather today.
