shirt-stripe boxes


Oh how I love this orange striped shirt......so much so that I hate to cut it and I got it for FREE!
It is a brand new Brooks Brothers 100% shirt!
I keep debating with myself should I add it to this quilt top or use it for something else?
Keep shirt-stripe boxes as shown in Kaffe Fassett's book "Passionate Patchwork" or add some
pizzazz? Should I just go for it?

Looks fun! If you don't cut the orange shirt, what would you do with it? It would be neat to have that orange in there. You are inspiring.

I would probably wear the shirt. It would look great in the quilt. I never follow a pattern too close, gotta make it your own. cw

I love the shirts pattern and always want to make it one day. I have been collecting shirts, just need time to cut into them - Hugs Natima
