shirt sandwiches

I made shirt strings a while back aiming for a string x quilt for leftover pieces of shirts. This weekend I spent some time cutting fabric for the sides.

It is fun to think that there are no two alike. I didn't use a foundation. I just sewed strips into bigger pieces and trimmed to the size I wanted. I used 3 1/2 x 10 1/2.

I cut the strips 1 1/2 x 10 1/2. I am making a 7 x 9 setting.

This project is one step closer, but, not part of my goal list, yet.

  1. love the look of the random centers! can hardly wait to see the end result!

  2. That's a really nice side project

  3. Oh, I like this idea...a crumby shirt String X! I've never made a String X and I have a lot of shirt scraps so...

  4. I like how you're separating the pieced shirt scraps with white strips.
